(699) Sing Me A Song

Rating: 3.7

Sing me a song of glory,
tell me an old fashioned story.
Sing of hard times, sad times true,
sing for me and sing for you.

Sing of Lincoln, Martin, Malcolm and Kennedy.
Sing of the races joining, living in harmony.
Sing of the past, present and hope for the future.
Sing my darlings sing, raise your hands to salute her.

Hi Melvina. Excellent poem! ! Esp loved 'and hope for the future.' Hope is one of the things that we desperately need. We can't survive, without it. Take care. TJ
