'A Child's If?' : Copyright William Forde: July 16th, 2015.
'If polar bears could read out loud and girls skip across the sky,
If only life went on and on and man was never born to die.
If hearts were never broken, nor stomachs left unfed,
or harsh words never spoken against the living or the dead.
If man could love his neighbour and East truly meet the West,
If no one ever learned to fail and no one was the best.
If such a place were ever found where all were free to go,
We'd find a heaven here on earth beneath the starry snow.'
