What Do You Think? A Mother Kneels To Pray Depr God, I have two growing sons — Two bright eyed lads as splendid And straight as young and slender fir Trees growing on the mountain side. So young and happy in affairs Of school and play, yet all too soon They will be men, with men’s courageous hearts Beneath their young and sturdy breast. But will they live in peace and happiness To have their homes and children? Or be compelled to travel down The Crimson road of war for which There’s no returning for so many Beloved sons! God, will they sail upon The seas in battleships of war? Or fly in planes across the sky That carry flaming death? Or will They march in battle, shouldering arms?
