Leaving Passions for a while. Have got some things to do.Here's one last thought before I go. But I'll be reading you.
THE NEW MILLENNIUM
(A message to my Grandchildren)
Open up the gates and let the new millenium through!
It will bring so many unknown wondrous things to you
Just as the small computer chip has altered life, it seems
Your dreams will be a thousand fold the depth of my own dreams
Technology has tread upon archaic paths it found
It made the world seem smaller and tore an iron curtain down
It's moving faster than a falling star or the spinning of the earth
May it always bring to humankind benefits of worth
Just imagine all the wonderful revelations to be seen!
You will have experiences beyond my wildest dreams
May the new millenium offer you fulfillment of your goals
As it marches in and takes control with fervor in its soul
May you profit from its glory in every single way
But not lose sight of things that progress tends to take away
Faith in God, respect for man, love of family
Reverence for all living things on land and in the sea
You may soar around the planet, you may walk the ocean floor
But remember that the rainbow's end is at your kitchen door
Don't let opulence detract you from small pleasures that you know
For NOTHING will surpass the splendor of a cardinal in the snow
