Treasure Island

Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)


Respect Sows Peace


Do not restrict respect
to age because someone is old
show real respect to all

but respect most
heart motivation
of people worthy
of that respect.

Respect is given
respect is earned
respect enriches
respect ennobles

graces civilization
elevates humanity
sows seeds of peace.

By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
