Let Love Burn You into Peace

 Syria

As God is our witness we shall

Create from your Golgotha

Lush gardens where young girls and boys will play

And from your crown of thorns we shall weave

Garlands of crimson roses and anemones

And as the larks and nightingales sing

Lingering in the blue of the skies

Our children will chant in the apple trees

And there will be psalms of joy and there will be peace

So burn in love you whom the world has forgotten

And blaze in pity in your unknown shredded graves.

Even while you are starving even while your children are dying

Burst into the flames of gentle grace

Then put out the fires with the tears of compassion.

I pray you be forged by love not by hate

And turn into something rich and strange

And of the fires let nothing remain alight

But the overwhelming ascending light.
