This Christmas, when the mist-drenched dawn
Will descend in steps glamorous and glowing,
The musical flow of voices sweet
In innumerable guises will fill the universe.
Scourging all authority, youth will rally
Down the streets with banners showing
That they uphold the dignity of the downtrodden.
With poetic force, the imagined world
Will be created where life and myth condense
To form a disconcerting picture
Of the human predicament today.
All sorrows will melt like snow,
An outcome of a multicultural commitment
Based on a single power—–
The power of love.
Poetry endowed with freshness,
Sensuality and rich inventiveness
Will provide a liberating image of man,
Who will emerge like the lotus plant,
Head held high without fear.
Freedom will be established………..
Freedom of living and thinking,
Freedom of walking and loving,
Freedom of writing and talking
And freedom of creating freedom.
Humanity will unfold its wings
To listen to the record-breaking musicians
And singers with vibrant voices
Who will sing about love and peace
While the storm of life abates.
