"We live in a time when meaning falls in splinters from our lives."
Yet we can still define a time and space where gracious living thrives.
If we agree to find religious zeal to leave ill will behind
Adding up wars' costs, be sure to double
Then multiply by the loss and the trouble
Sweep our feet up out from the rubble
to build on our better dreams
the world we want to see
Every day when again we rise
sweet beauty could greet our eyes
If we each could decide, what meaning would we will to advertise?
