Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)


Who Then Is Your Neighbour?


Who then is your neighbour?
our whole world is your neighbour?
must I spell it out for you?
every Jew Muslim Christian
Hindu Buddhist etc in this world...
every Arab Israel Palestinian
Russian American Chinese Indian
straight gay or bent in between...

is your neigbour! God not you will judge!
neigbours with feelings emotions problems
fears as worthy of respect as pain yours?
love honour respect neighbours
as you long desire to be treated
it is written God not you will judge!

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
