The world is at rest,
a respite from the noise, from the fumes, from the crowds.
Let us be braver,
conquer all our fears, our anxieties, our doubts.
Raise our voices in love, in friendship, in kindness.
Notice what’s important, overcome our blindness.
Remember Mother Earth, renew our connection.
Keep safe, keep strong, keep faith in our shared protection.
The world is at rest.
We can pass this test.
Relearn old ways for
future better days.
