A Perfect World


We all want a perfect world
with no wars anywhere,
to live in co-existence
with everyone and everything
that surrounds us.
Utopia you might say,
but is that so unreasonable
that it could never come true.
We all want that perfect world
to be able to relax
without getting angry
if someone makes a mistake
of if we fail to do something.
A perfect world
where love heals hearts
and hate is nowhere to be seen.
Where help is always
just fingertips away
and love will surround us all
in a perfect world.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
