A boy friend is…
To confide in
And live close to
And dream daydreams with;

Someone who understands
How things are,
And where the hurts come from,
And where the flowers go.

The Way to Peace
by Earnest Evans

The universe is limitless for thought,
And when some brutal humans force the mind
To follow dogmas that will freedom bind,
It takes away free life for which men fought.
Diverse in teaching and environment,
The nations failed to find true unity,
And peace was killed by war’s artillery,
To bring sad death to many innocent.
When toleration in the world shall rule,
The Prince of Peace will then look on with joy,
For nations shall sit down in Reason’s school
To foil the schemes that evil men employ.
Then feet will stay upon the peace footstool,
And friendship reign which nothing can destroy.

They shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. (Isaiah 2:4)

A Whisper of Dreams
by Joan Canfield

Whisper to the night
The lamplight on the square
Has heard the daylight fade away
Has listened to its prayers…
Has blest the tolling overtones,
The whisper of the prayer…
Of someone lost within the night
The lamplight on the square.

The Old Schoolhouse
by Joan Canfield

Old red schoolhouse perhaps you
Are but a passing dream.
Your bell still tolls the hours
Of daylight… calm, serene.
Perhaps it’s time that has forgotten
Your ivory wooden shrine,
Old cornerstone of memory;
Old red schoolhouse of mine.

NOTICE → Please add 2 t. soda to the first mixture in the recipe on the back.
