Love and Enmity

Know ye the value of these passing days and vanishing nights.

Strive to attain a station of absolute love one toward another.

By the absence of love, enmity increases.

By the exercise of love, love strengthens and enmities dwindle away.

(Abdu'l-Baha, The Promulgation of Universal Peace, p. 9)

I Still Am

I Still Am

I am not going back,

for I still am;

the guy wandering,

guitar on his back,

minstrel like,

singing his simple rhymes.


I am not going back,

for I still am,

the young man with tools

and bamboo,

traveling, making, playing

and sometimes selling

the flutes he made.



he traded some tools for others,

the bamboo is the classroom,

students are his tools,

but I am not going back

for I still am.
