Vision


We in our wonder planned a better world
from the low down valley of the past.
We gazed around at what should be achieved,
steep slopes and undulating vistas
rising to horizons far and wide
and, in our wonder, planned a better world
from the low down valley of the past.

Eyes bright and with an upward gaze
we set our rising pace to match the land,
stumbled over tree roots, potholes, rocks,
squelched through rills and muddy banks,
started fixing little stumbling blocks,
lost the vision, once our holy grail,
when eyes were bright and with an upward gaze
we set our rising pace to match the land.

Tribulations of our upward climb,
now we tell maturing progeny,
how we made secure and safe the road.
But our ending road is their beginning.
They have eyes bright and an upward gaze.
What should be achieved is further on.
Now we tell maturing progeny.
