War Case - Poem by Bill Grace

The case that went to war
Would practice far and wide
For what became eventuality.
Despite healing efforts, it bears these scars.

It moves again but not to tune of war
To gather child from a distant land
Who we have come to love.

I wonder if this thing of swords to plowshares
Can apply not only to a travel case
But a host of other things,
That by God's grace
Can lead us from war's path
To greater respect and understanding
Where comes the better peace.
