SPREAD ACROSS THE UNIVERSE
It begins with the words
Softly spoken – Maybe an accent
A soft Dublin brogue…
The words are love, peace, and care.
Love is the most powerful;
Its effects are contagion
Spread by deed and hope
There are no barriers which can contain it.
It is the most virulent antidote
To war, bombs and hate.
Peace is less effective and more fragile,
It needs careful nourishment,
One false move can destroy it
Peace has to be cherished
Like a new-born child…
Care is easy,
It requires only an open heart,
An empathic sense of other’s hurts…
With care we can breed gentle peace
and love will spread across the universe.
