ALTHOUGH YOU ARE NOT THERE

By Josie Whitehead

Although You Are Not There

The guns have ceased their thunderous roar
     And bird song takes its place;
And war has moved to somewhere new
     And left but little trace.

The golden meadows bloom with flowers
     In summer’s warm, fresh air.
And has the world now healed its wounds
     Although you are not there?

The gold of autumn strikes our world;
     Then winter’s wind blows cold.
Christmas joy comes flooding in 
     And Earth’s at peace, we’re told.

When winter changes into spring,
      I offer up my prayer

That humans learn to live in peace - - - 
     Although you are not there.
