Civilisation

samuelpye  
River and streams,
that make up distant dreams,

mountains and valleys,
that flow as they go,

what we protect,
is a civilised world,

where the young look after the old,
and the old look after the young,

a world where everyone may be given a chance to succeed,
in whatever they consider to be their creed,

a chance to pass on to their children,
what is important to them,

a place of safety,
where all can enjoy,

what a wonderful land,
has been created,

a world for us all to keep learning,
