"The Nut Gatherers" by William Adolphe Bouguereau‘Safe Passage’ by Linda Imbler The Society November 12, 2017 Beauty, Poetry 1 Comment To do no harm, no deeds with base intent, To this end we must teach the little ones The way of safe passage. In lieu, so spent Time on a hateful road, the train brakeman And teary conductor make the announcement. Ill-aimed conveyance fueled by malcontent, Some misfiring heart with broken cadence, Or sealed, shut mind. Profoundly important To shepherd all mankind with elegance, And not yield to the helm of hatred and discontent.
