Incredible laughter heard from afar
birds singing, squirrels in a mocking playful spar
Singing clear brook, with water so cold
that dizziness ensues with a taste so bold.
Wild ones come to welcome each quest
nodding approval to each one so blessed.
People caring for their neighbor next door
whether they are rich or whether they be poor.
People stop to aid the child that is lost
and no one questions the time that it cost.
People gather together, to give thanks for their lives
learning from histories accident archives.
People create things of beauty, it’s hard not to cry
that touches the soul and not just the eye.
Children are loved and taught right from wrong
never beaten to bleed because the other is strong.
People sleep peaceful at night and they are never afraid
they know in their hearts they will not be betrayed.
They continue their quest to achieve their dreams
no desire out of reach, no hope too extreme.
The sound of their joy, rides on currents of air
for all to feel and all to share.
Wars long forgotten, cruelty unknown
generations of love are all that is shown.
Golden ages of learning and creations divine,
knowledge and caring in humanity entwine.
