Treasure Island

Louie Levy

(1926 / N.Y.C; NY USA)

*America - *


-for pilgrim sake,
and land once, of 'Native' soil
Allegiance pledged, of
conquest gained, from
Earth's borne spirits' bold.

America, Proud America

Our Earth, need not be harmed
when war tales are often told
and blood stained flags, unfold

America, we Love thee

of gifted Earth bequeathed
ne'er we forget, Democracy,
and all those enslaved, be free

America America

May true freedom be our Quest
Of Womanhood and Brotherhood
from shore to ocean sea.

'With Love and Compassion,
Wherever Earth Be Shared'

Please; 'Support Peace'

    Fine words written by a compassionate man, the futility of war, the harm it does, goes on and on. Perhaps one day peace? (Report) Reply

    Readers; Thank you for your suportive comments. These words found their way to
    me. Feelings that are all part of a library of knowlege and experience that are of our past parent hoods, Ions past. We had hoped that WWII would have ended all
    horific wars. Perserverence with Love and Empathy will surely have Peace prevail
