By John Hertz: In the United States, where I live, today is Juneteenth.
To sit and dream, to sit and read,
To sit and learn about the world
Outside our world of here and now –
our problem world –
To dream of vast horizons of the soul
Through dreams made whole,
Unfettered, free – help me!
All you, who are dreamers too,
Help me to make our world anew.
I reach out my hands to you.
