Write well and read with care and thought

A little knowledge cannot do us harm

And on that base with certainty we build

For learning has a wonder and a charm

As with new words our avid mind is filled

Now poetry and songs can  give us voice

For others who with us share this dear earth.

To dwell in silence is of course a choice

Yet sharing is a means of giving birth.

 

The news is filled with death and with wrong deeds

Our hearts lurch as we read the frightful words

Our blood boils and our minds gain speed

From articles ill thought that do no good

 

Write well and read with care and thought

Lest you by evil also are o’erwrought
