corner view: poem

Corner View is a weekly appointment - each Wednesday - created by Jane (Spain) and curated by Francesca (Italy), where bloggers from all corners of the world share their view on a pre-arranged theme.  The theme this week is " poem" and comes from Joanne (Japan) and Ibabe (Basque Country).

Shel Silverstein was an American poet, singer-songwriter, cartoonist, screenwriter, peace-activist and author of children's books. After listening to the news this morning of escalating hatred, unthinkably barbaric acts and retaliation, this poem seems appropriate.  Peace...
