A New Year's toast: no great And garish Champagne fete, no neon Or noisemakers. Kneeling alone By a river's darkened banks, Silenced By the stars, amazed As always By the night, just a passing thought Held out in hope: Let the world Come back to peace-- Let men Be unafraid To walk the night, To wonder At the miracle That each day is-- If only hate and death Are dealt away, And blood lust Is replaced by exaltation In what the human soul Could be...and will. Leslie P. Garcia copyright 2003
