A Peaceful Word by B. A. Llewellyn    Speaker broadcasting Showcased Talent  

It often takes a hero to speak a peaceful word.
It often takes no words at all to make your point be heard.

It often seems like loveís a dream that never will come true.
Yet every single light that shines brings wisdom to our time
And every single thought is heard Ė yours, and theirs, and mine.

Autumn Is  by Ray Malus      

Autumn is the rekindled smoke of too-long-dormant hearths.
The thrilling shiver of the yearís first frost.

The smell of pristine notebooks, filled with promise.
The must of textbooks, rife with unlearned lore.

Stand and chat
