A world of hope in an expectant look,
As multitudes' pedantic blinded eyes
In staunch refute of anecdotal book
Ingeminate historic harrowed cries.

Our children see with undefiled sense ~
Their hearts and minds novitiate, our charge.
The future's cast of tenets' existence;
The time is nigh, malignity to purge.

Our ventures now each fledgling's discipline,
Whence we endow, mankind's forever gained..
Hereafter molds society's doctrine;
Eternally our lessons lie ingrained

Our vision now bestows the blind with sight.
We are the world ~ its beacon and its light..

I love this one, Nan. I'm glad you posted it.


btw, when you have time could you teach me how to change color, font size, bold, etc. in html and how to add graphics??? thanks... you'd think I'd know this by now. Your poems are not *only* attractive in content and I like that!
