    Each spring I sow the seeds of peace,
    And pray that sun and rain increase,
    The rocky soil is hard to till;
    But I believe in human will.

    My seedlings all aspire to be
    Robust, resilient redwood trees.
    I chuckle, for their grounds are just,
    And help them rise above the dust.

    The seeds gain knowledge from below,
    Then sprouts emerge from under toe.
    I hope these scrawny plants survive,
    For if they fail, new weeds will thrive.

    But even winter's spell for frost
    Reveals this cause is not yet lost:
    For though the winds of war may rage
    They never can uproot the sage.

    Then sunlight penetrates the clouds
    And blossoms cry for joy aloud:
    For soon they'll turn from flower to fruit
    And learn that peace is worth pursuit.
