And today’s quote from Dumbo

“Honeycomb Home” by Andrew Carter

Honeycomb Home

 

Roses are red, red abuzz

With bees buzzing buzzes.

Violets are truly blue!

 

If Peace was made of honey

We’d each have a piece

Of harmony, both me and you.

 

When I send peaceful words

They don’t harm or disturb

I write, yet Im not alone.

 

Being born to a chalice, a buzz

Belies my writing palace,

Buzzing busily on my throne.

 

I consider wise words

Of kindness with mad verbs,

My honey, my peace flies home.

 

“In a Distant Land” by Louise McCarthy

In a Distant Land.

 

With a new born baby in her arms,

In a distant land men took up arms,

The mother sang a lullaby,

In a distant land a soldier cried,

In its mother’s arms the baby snuggled,

In a distant land the soldier struggled,

But his fight was lost –

And the soldier:

​​Comrade;

​​Father;

​​Son,

Deprived of life, slumped by his gun.
