Half, full, or quarter view, one moon shines
Tomorrow, now, then, all endless time
You, me, them, flesh and blood, all life heirs.
We have let fear, greed and false beliefs
limit our freedom to stretch our hearts
‘Round the globe to people here and there.
Sages say love neighbors as ourselves
while earth’s so constant moon radiates
golden beams showing us how to care.
