Tag Archives: children of the world

. . .

lend me an island
surround it with tranquil seas
i shall build a fort there
to keep all children away
from harm’s way
love alone will shelter that sphere

my grandson turns four today
i am in a trance with joy
for i lived to relive his birth
on that magical day
i cannot however possibly ignore
lost little anonymous lives galore
