I Dream A World

I dream a world where man
No other man will scorn,
Where love will bless the earth
And peace its paths adorn
I dream a world where all
Will know sweet freedom’s way,
Where greed no longer saps the soul
Nor avarice blights our day.
A world I dream where black or white,
Whatever race you be,
Will share the bounties of the earth
And every man is free,
Where wretchedness will hang its head
And joy, like a pearl,
Attends the needs of all mankind-
Of such I dream, my world!

    • Great post Pete! I’m yet to read the latest UWE newsletter as have been slogging away at practical for hand in this week. It really is a very hard slog. We’ve been given new & last module. So its straight into it. No rest for the wicked. Quite scary & exciting that in less than 6 mths we’ll be done!
      Pete, do you think any of my blog posts would be good enough to send to Sarah?
