Sonnet, Love Song For Peace - Poem by Peter S. Quinn

I'm with a heart firmly in graceful peace,
I believe in those dreams for all mankind;
For each love in the world, feelings increase,
And for this, none injustice be confined.

Like a summer river is the passion repose,
Or the passing breeze to the butterflies;
Where the weakest sits on the bud of a rose,
And with its smallest wings to the sky flies.

Let there not be war when love is with you,
In the coming times with the morning bright;
Let our feelings and trust be a breakthrough,
Like the new dawn from the darkest of night!

If peace be weak, - it's because we care not,
And more to belligerence then allot.
