A Poem by An owl on the moon

In the spirit of peace on earth, we share with you the following collaboration based on the Christmas carol 'Silent Night' ... from Emma and Craig Froman...



 [1] Sweet peace arising
O’er a world full of woe,
The Creator’s heart is shining,
Lighting troubled paths as we go,
Hold us forever safe,
Hold us forever safe.


 [2] Sweet dove, Peaceful Dove,

Sent as a message from Heaven above,

Chirping a message of hope to the world,

Keeping your peacefulness, little white bird,

Yuletide Harmony  be,

Yuletide Harmony be.


 [3] Joy floods our souls ’n our hearts

When opened to receive

Brothers in Spirit all fear departs

When we learn to love and believe

Trust His love and his word

Trust His love and his word


 [4] Sweet peace arising
Breathing life in streets of pain,
The crushed, the
battered pining
For a droplet of the holy rain.
Forgive us our blood and gore.
Forgive us our blood and gore.


 [5] Sweet peace in our hearts

Bring happiness to the world,

Jews, Muslims, Christians and more

Join our prayer for peace on each shore

No more wars on earth

No more wars on earth


[6] Come, Oh Come,
Jesus child,
May thy love undefiled
bring accord on this Holy Day,
driving war and strife away;
Heralding love and peace,
Heralding love and peace.


 [7] Sweet peace arising

Joyful hearts sing as one

Bowing to His will alone

We submit in humble gratitude,

Knowing that we are forgiven,

Knowing that we are forgiven.


 [8] Sweet peace, noble beliefs
You’re never far, always in reach
With a kind gesture to friends or strangers
One warm hand helping to guide another
Join me in humanity's dreams
Join me in humanity's dreams


 [9] O’er the moon shine

All tinkling hearts,

In Cadbury nights with rosy sight,

In laughter n’ love carrying baskets of gifts

It’ll come true…

It’ll start the year anew!


 [10] Let's look at the sky

stick to the hands

And Let's run together

to the star that shines

Hold us forever safe,

Hold us forever safe.


 [11] When chaos gets its grooming

We'll send it back to death zone

And march our people to the land so green

Where milk and honey flows

They'll forever have their peace

They'll forever have their place


 [12] Glorious smile

Nothing is vile

Dancing larks, joyful hearts

Enjoy the day where sweet peace is to stay

When we shall truly love,

When we shall truly love.


 [13] Sweet peace arising

Carried on the angels’ wings

Lifting melodies afar,

With the music of the stars

Sing over every heart,

Sing over every heart.

it would make such a lovely recording. I sang it to myself after I knew the tune....it is a nice, new rendition done to a classic tune. Wonderful sentiment, good collective effort!

It is amazing to see how wonderfully this poem fits and flows so beatifully together with so many contributors. I am honored to be a part of this expression of hope for continued brotherhood, love, and peace. It demonstrates in a small way what can be accomplished when we rise above the man-made barriers and work together as one. Thank you, Craig and Emma for bringing us together and thanks to all the other poets who have contributed to this inspiring poem. I am in awe of how well the verses written by 13 poets from around the world have blended so well.
