"It is sad to think that one side of the world has so much and the other half so little and yet, while this state of affairs is obviously unjust, the poorer part of the world has developed a capacity to find a strength of endurance that the western world will never know. Many find their smile in the morning sun and grow without resentment to know contentment of lot. They live at a more leisurely and carefree pace of life and discover solace in a simplicity of purpose that most westerners can only dream of. I dedicate this brief poem to them:
'Lost in Lillies' : Copyright William Forde: May, 2018.
"To be lost in lillies when the sun shines sweet.
Where angels smile and life's complete.
Where carefree lives are lived unstressed.
Where less is more and more is less."
