Poems by Maria Miraglia





I wish no longer

see military parades

people celebrating

independence days

colored flags waving

over schools and palaces

manors and castles

Hear patriotic hymns

and people’s praises

for soldiers ‘ valor

the greater their courage

the more the blood shed

May wise hands reward with

golden medals

men fighting for peace

today and ever

Let’s all remove

each war’s hero

from history books

and men’ s minds

today and ever

Each nation a piece of

a common world

of a planet suspended

in the endless void

all around

the space unknown

Let’s all dream

One nation One people

our common flag the sky

our common nation the world
