POEMS: by Helen Steiner Rice (about kindness, peace, compassion)



A dark hand touching a light hand,

a young face looking into an old,

all people working together

for a goal to be told.


A stranger and a stranger together,

a foe and a foe are now friends,

all people helping each other,

making beginnings meet ends.


A heart understanding another,

a soul reaching out to a soul,

all people feeding their elders,

with plate, fork, spoon and bowl.


A rich man helping a poor man,

a convict dancing with a child,

all people put aside their differences,

and share a hope that is wild.


A shout comes out from the open,

like a footstep falling on sand,

all people together proclaim:

“Now there is Peace in this land”

Helen Steiner Rice
