Peace :


Here are some more beautiful thoughts in this poem. See if you can sing it along with your friends.


I'd like to build the world a home
And furnish it with love,
Grow apple trees and honey bees
And snow-white turtle doves.
I'd like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony,
I'd like to hold it in my arms
And keep it company.
I'd like to see the world for once
All standing hand in hand,
And hear them echo
through the hills
Ah, peace throughout the land.
(That’s the song I hear)


I'd like to teach the world to sing
(That the world sings today)
In perfect harmony,
I'd like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony.
I'd like to build the world a home
And furnish it with love,
Grow apple trees and honey bees
And snow-white turtle doves.

The word POETRY originates from a Greek word meaning TO MAKE. A poet is thus a maker and the poem something that is made or created. No single definition of poetry is possible but some characteristic features of poetry may be mentioned. Poetry has a musical quality with rhythm, pitch, metre and it may use figures of speech such as simile and metaphor. While quite a few poems in this selection are in traditional forms, the unit also includes modern poems that are free from formal restrictions.


Here is a list of English Poems written by various authors. Whatever the question is, poetry may be the answer. Writers say poetry provides them with comfort, a way to express themselves and the discipline of finding the essence with few words. Writing the poem (and finding just the right word) is the measure of success that the authors use. Really good poetry is instinctive. It’s who you are. It’s from the heart. You need to expose yourself to all kinds of poets and you may find your motivation and muse that way. Poetry gets to the core meaning. Poetry expands ideas.
