Eyes of the Children

In the eyes of the children
Love peace and joy

In the eyes of the children
We love and adore

In the eyes of the children
Whose innocence we betray

In the eyes of the children
By grave yards we pray

Oh land shore and air,
Take heed lest we lose

In the eyes of the children
It is their souls we bleed.

Let no man raise arms
No humanity decay

On the streets where the children
So innocently play.

Let peace joy and love cross over our hearts
We must play with the children
We must never depart

In these young eyes, lies the truth of it all
In the eyes of the children
By a hearth soft and warm

Let not our hearts, be swayed by the sword.
Put down the weapons
So our hearts can be heard.

Be not dismayed at the wisdom displayed
In the eyes of the children
So young and so brave.

These eyes challenge the wicked,
They challenge the rich
They challenge the powers
Who become meak

In the eyes of the children
In the eyes of new life

There are no greater causes
More worthy than a child

~ An Amish Boy Goes to the Mall ~

A fifteen year old Amish boy and his father were in a mall.
They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but
especially by two shiny, silver walls that could move apart
and then slide back together again.

The boy asked, 'What is this Father?'
The father (never having seen an elevator)
responded, 'Son, I have never seen anything
like this in my life, I don't know what it is.'

While the boy and his father were watching with amazement,
a fat old lady in a wheel chair moved up to the moving walls
and pressed a button.. The walls opened, and the lady rolled
between them into a small room. The walls closed, and the
boy and his father watched the small numbers above the walls
light up sequentially.. They continued to watch until it reached
the last number, and then the numbers began to light
in the reverse order.

Finally the walls opened up again and a gorgeous
24-year-old blond stepped out.

The father, not taking his eyes off the
young woman, said quietly to his son.

'Go get your Mother.'

A nice picture, a nice poem and a nice joke. As I am not an Amish and as I know that it does not work they way the Amish father thinks, I will not go and get my wife.
