The telephone lines
Stretching into the distance
Are a MUSIC STAFF
The birds spaced along the staff
Are the notes of a gay song.
UU -Martha Smith, A9
I AM FOUND EVERYWHERE,
Where land is no more,
And comes alive with rippling water,
Where swamps are wide and green,
With vicious crocodiles,
Where tumbling hills stop,
And become neat farms, one after another:
l'm found in green meadows,
And sunny wild flowers.
Who am I? You ask yourself.
l am the beauties of the earth.
- Sandra Turner, B7
THERE IS NO END TO BEAUTY!
A brightly colored pebble
dropped in the bottom of a pool,
causing tiny circlets of water
becoming wider, wider,
The fragile wings of an insect
or the eyes of a faithful dog are beautiful.
A person who harbors ill feelings toward life,
neither sees nor looks for beauty.,
How empty life must be! V Q

THE BEAUTY OF SIGHT n l
What if it should come to be
That only darkness I would see,
No green-leafed trees on which to look,
No blue skies, or bluer brook. I
I could still hear the bluebirds' song,
But to hear and not see, would make life long.
Life at its springtime is beauty, you see,
But of course, being blind could not happen to

BEAUTY SURROUNDS US,
It comes singing from the magic lips of a violin.
lt dances on the golden flames of a wood fire,
lt shimmers on the angry thunderheads high
above the earth.
lt is found in the soft brown eyes of a fawn,
ln the delicate petals of a flower,
ln the gay music of birds.
lt is everywhere:
Everywhere you look there is Beauty.
Sometimes, you find it in a church,
Or in the warm companionship of a good friend.
Beauty is in all of God's gifts.
- Stan Leibowitz and fenifer H uot, A9's
Ioe isn't prejudiced! Doesn't he always say -
What matter if a man is black or white, a
Protestant or Iew?
Who cares in what land he was born?
Sure! That's what Ioe says, but how does he
Who says America should be a melting pot?
Why should all individuals merge into one like
Why not a symphony orchestra?
Each tone helps complete the harmonious .W
Of people living, working, building, side by
There are discords - yes -
But the Great Conductor will help us blend
these into unity
Ioe goes to the big white church on the corner
Each Sunday he and five hundred other
devoted people, listen to the sermon
Then a Negro preacher takes the pulpit -
The congregation is uneasy, this thing is
But why should it be so?
How can God be in a church where all
His children cannot pray together?
Ioe is kind to Negroes - why certainly!
He says it makes him sick to hear people talk
about them in a cruel way.
Yeah - he's kind all right - like a kindly lord
condescending to be friendly with a
Yet loe's not so unusual!
There are many others like him.
Ioe isn't prejudiced, doesn't he always say -

Who cares in what land he was born
Sure! That's what loe says
But how does he feel inside?
