If I were free

If I were free
(Travis Edmonson)
Peter, Paul & Mary

If I were free to speak my mind,
I'd tell a tale to all mankind
Of how the flowers do bloom and fade
Of how we've fought and how we've paid.

This weary world has had its fill
Of words of war on every hill
The time has come for peaceful days
And peaceful men of peaceful ways.

If I were free to speak my mind,
I'd tell a tale to all mankind
Of how the flowers do bloom and fade
Of how we've fought and how we've paid.

When all mankind has ceased to fight
I'll raise my head in thanks each night
For this rich Earth and all it means
For golden days and peaceful dreams.

If I were free to speak my mind,
I'd tell a tale to all mankind
Of how the flowers do bloom and fade
Of how we've fought and how we've paid.

Peter,Paul and Mary no eran de mi devoción -yo era más bien roKero- ya sabes, Credence, Rollings etc. aúnque también escuchaba folk -me gustaba Baez y Falsterbó- pero ahora a mis años ya la cosa cambia y prefiero escuchar esta canción más tranquilita y que no conocía.

Beso dominguero

A mí me encantaban a mis 14-16 años. Luego ya me fijé más en otros estilos. Y ahora me vuelven a gustar.

Otro beso de domingo

Simple and wise words that too few people keep in mind during the day (when they are engaged in all kinds of battles, from small to big). Peace is not only about stopping warfare in its most visible forms but also in its "hidden" forms. So let's emphasise cooperation and solidarity instead of competition and rivalry.

Have a nice day (it's now Tuesday, 5:12 am)

Buon giorno, Giovanni:

Yes, I totally agree. If we are not aware of the hidden forms of violence, we cannot prevent the "explosion" of it when it has got too big to be stopped. Everything starts small. It is up to us to be "atentos" so we don't let it grow. Yes, "let's emphasise cooperation and solidarity instead of competition and rivalry."

Tus pensamientos me han sentado bien como desayuno. Gracias.

Have a nice day (you woke up soo early!!)
