YORK AND LANCASTER


White rose of York
        red of Lancaster
           Seeing only each
                 other's thorns
                     did cause disaster.
        But centuries
             onward flow
                Now in peace
                     side by side  they grow
        and their pink children
             wed purple asters.''

  SWEETER THAN THE RED ROSE


Sweeter than the red
        smell pink saffron
            and gold rose.
   Their hues ignite no
        lust or anger.
           They spread more perfume
              as they grow.'

WE NEED BUILD NOTHING


We need build nothing.
If we create space,
he or she will come.

Shiny Apple

 

..............

 

O my great one! 

 

How you shine! Shine! Shine!

 

The arms of the ages open,

 

Receiving those worn, scarred and weary souls

 

To embrace a new freedom of dreams!

 

 

 

O my soul of loving concern,

 

For those beaten by war, 

 

And the ravages of man's frailties 

 

That most often lurk unseen within his being,

 

Lift up your best alms,

 

And transform those regrets 

 

Beyond the iniquities of the past.

 

 

Streets paved with the shadows 

 

Of lonely and searching immigrants 

 

Lost in time and groping for security,

 

Never allowing malice to obsure your divinity.

 

 

Shine! Shine! Shine On!
