MY DREAM!
Poetry by Noelene Sanderson

How dearly would I love to be
MOTHER TO THE WORLD!
Gather all its people in
The circle of my arms' embrace;
Wave a magic wand, removing
Poverty from every race.
Comfort every child, and take
Them all upon my knee;
Rescue all the creatures from
The suffering THEY face.
 
How carefully apportion out
Every scrap of food;
Keep the wealthy waiting, 'till
The poor were satisfied.
Show we've inadvertently
Perpetuated wrong;
We could share the whole world's goods
'Till EVERYONE was fit and strong.
 
Break new ground in finding better
Ways of dealing with each other;
Recognise the basic hopes
We share with one another.
 
All the races have their beauty -
Trying hard to do their duty
In the middle of the trials
That they face;
So we can respect each other,
Realising place and colour
Don't make any difference
When you love the human race!
