A world where the grass are green and hope lingered still,
Peace in understanding made new a life men believed,
And the thoughtfulness of his faith such outreached dreams,
then living had a purpose and the mind its will.
Birth of a child, had mother saw him still kicking,
Numbered days countless in year hope never seize,
frail touch of his limb reminds mother her sole living,
“ humanity”, she could save purposeful meaning.
Befall sunny eve’s, flower blossom and seeds grew,
While the sky ever blue in and out in seasons,
As birds of the air flew not lone eagle had crew,
And its stands in solidarity such reasons.
Canny desire drew curiosity so high,
As eagle’s eye so did prudence’s focus oblige,
Then in solitude stood formidable quest price,
If but Confidence held such innermost pride.
Age from ages, experience had spoken great things,
As sound of music risen within heavenly beings,
For once the lost had found his master own good will,
And in script upon script days after had few listen.
