Books To the Ceiling by Arnold Lobel Montgomery

Books to the ceiling
Books to the sky
My piles of books are a mile high
How I love them
How I need them
I'll have a long beard by the time I read them

I Said A Mother's Prayer For You by Jan Abrams Achenbach


I said a Mother's Day prayer for you
to thank the Lord above
for blessing me with a lifetime
of your tenderhearted love.
I thanked God for the caring
you've shown me through the years,
for the closeness we've enjoyed
in time of laughter and of tears.
And so, I thank you from the heart
for all you've done for me
and I bless the Lord for giving me
the best mother there could be!

Tying The Knots Of Peace by Jessica Don Norman


With knot one,
My spell's begun
May it's power soar
It's for everyone

With knot two
Pure as mountain dew
My motive is
That my wish come true

With knot three
Find Harmony
From Ocean floor
To the tallest tree

By knot four
Open the door
End suffering
And banish war

With knot five
For peace, we'll strive
In tying this cord
My goal comes alive

With knot six
To wings adhere
My wish for peace
An end for fear

With seven knots
Adorn my cord
Be there peace at home
And peace abroad

In tying knot eight
Let peace be our fate

And with knot nine
Peace and love intertwine

Peace Everywhere by Joseph Hesser Parsons

Peace, everywhere, peace today!
Peace in lands of scruffy trees and pine,
Peace in lands of olives and wine,
Peace in lands where peaks are white,
Peace in lands where fields are bright.
Peace in lands of oasis and sand,
Peace in lands where people band,
Peace in lands where children play,
Peace in lands where people pray,
Peace in lands in the thick of the fight,
Peace in lands ruled by force and might.

Everywhere, everywhere, peace this day!
Pray that all world leaders lead the way,
Encouraging moral people to stand proud and tall,
No government too great, no nation too small.
