Reverie

 
(for my late mother)*
 

Let us
share
 
if you would
but dare
 
fruits of
this blessed
earth
 
Nature gave us
Plenty

 
WE invented
Dearth

 
*
 
If you
would spare
 
in largesse
bare
 
and give
a hoot
or two
 
misery
would be
history
 
life
a bit
more fair

 
*
 
Be trustee
not an
overlord
 
of rill
rood
and air
 
live in
sociability
 
empathy
and care
 
*
 
No One is
your enemy
 
no nation
is your Foe

 
but give
the giving
heart
free range
 
let go
where
it will go
 
It will
to the Eden
of our dreams

 
where
benedictions
overflow
