Sonnet: The World Needs Lasting Peace


The world when made by God was most perfect,
As creation was based on love divine;
First sin of parents first was prime defect,
And fallen angels made the world less shine.

The peace of Eden Adam, Eve had seen
Became a thirst that worsened upon earth;
A rare commodity, thus peace has been,
As time is wasted getting peace, so dearth.

But birth of Jesus brought back heav’nly peace,
As sinners were forgiven by the Lord;
Thus peace of mind and heart were got with ease,
As man followed the Scripture’s every Word.

Lord Jesus said, ‘Peace-makers were all blest! ’
As love returns to every home, heart, nest.

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
