A Wish

If music be the alphabet of love,

play on through the hours and days of life,

enriching each moment with a wisdom

unspoken in all the earth’s sacred writ

and prized by the world’s varied religions

under red-setting skies around the globe.

For if music falls on our ears as we walk,

the earth itself would be free of hatred

and people would greet each other freely

with open embrace, hearty handshakes,

and words of such enthusiastic joy

that war would be banished and we would love

each other and the earth we tread upon.

We would speak the language of dawn’s bright song.
