A Wish for Peace from Dr. Seuss

A Prayer for a Child by Dr. Seuss

From here on earth,
From my small place
I ask of You
Way out in space:
Please tell all men
In every land
What You and I
Both understand …

Please tell all men
That Peace is Good
That’s all
That need be understood
In every world
In Your great sky.

(We understand.
Both You and I.)

I discovered this poem in a Dr. Seuss painting at the Art-Cade Gallery in Williamsburg, and I wanted to share it.

Best wishes for a happy, peaceful holiday and New Year!
