PLEA SE
War and strife
(echo) life
Peace and love
(echo) dove
Is this to much to ask
(echo) task
We are stewards, custodians are we
(echo) be
Our beautiful jewel blue
(echo) clue
Weeps oh so for harmony
(echo) see
How the stars twinkle in their order
(echo) duh
A supernova lights our days
(echo) rays
Radiating for each and every one
(echo) none
Only the blind cannot yet see
(echo) mercy
Love is the answer so let it be
(echo) plea

  5. Your rhyming here is wonderfully like bells ringing. The echo from the sides of nature's forms always adds to the thought so that the plea for mercy seems to say to me "more than words, please!" Very neat.

  9. Only the blind cannot yet see
    Love is the answer so let it be

    Love can overcome whatever obstacles without really having to bother. But sometimes one has to strive hard when third parties are involved.
