Antoine Leiris

 

You are an exemplary
Your reaction’s magnanimous
You have risen above else
Teaching us supreme lesson
Of love, peace and tolerance
Not to hate the savage fiends

Hatred killed your consort beloved
It couldn’t kill your quintessence
Your son will follow sequence
With dad like you to guide thence
World lauds your benevolence
As you have set a noble trend!
