A Return To Peace - Poem by C. Albert Andrews

Dust on tranquil streets
Seldom disturbed by gusty wind.
Trees no more barren by residue of war
Filled with fruits and fresh leaves.
Stand tall and proud to salute the birth of peace.

Signs of life! Life has returned
To villages, towns and homes.
Cattle roam fields of green pastures
No more lean but robustly satisfied.
Other animals serenely sleep.
Homely presence once ravaged by war.

Pure, innocent lives! New chance to live!
Children are what they should be
Share stories, jokes, walk and play together
In classroom at the same school
Share one common language.

Lions no longer feast on lambs
The hunted fear no more
The hunters lay down arms
Mother earth yields its food
And mankind has plenty.

Extinction of crime
Echoes of war go silent
True brother and sister hood
Evolve into a world of peace
One people, see no difference
In color, race or religion
