To Russia with love

The era of new freedom, market force your new way
Don’t rule out compassion as economics give sway

Speak of the devil, beware shadowy cloaks
Time for renewal, cast off bitter yokes

Arise now new leaders with hearts now restored
Bring justice mighty homeland for one and for all

hi,
its great you posted it!

here is a poem from me about yours.."The message is "love and peace"
the message is deep
i hope we understand
the underlying meaning
the country is awakening
awakening once again
in a new era
with a new zeal
and succeed it will
the world is looking
with eyes wide open
at this great nation
wishing her well
in all her pursuits"

Best wishes!

I'm impressed by the breadth of your subject matter, Lindsay. I don't think I've ever known of another poet with such diverse interests. Fascinating.

Very good advice (and good poetry too).

Yes, so much opportunity right now in the former USSR.

Canada is a bit like a young Russia who was raised in democracy. the same stoic pioneer spirit that will attempt things that daunt lesser mortals... no fear of manual labor, and so much land that we think we can waste it.
