A short poem
by Robin Walter
words pour from our open lips
shaping each our sacred dance
take our place at the long table
growing peace lilies in the park
These are based on Franklin D. Roosevelt’s ‘Four Freedoms’
Freedom of speech
Freedom of worship
Freedom from want
Freedom from fear
The work was in response to the speech made by American Abolitionist and liberal activist Wendell Phillips in 1852: “Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty; power is ever stealing from the many to the few."
Here is a short clip of the end of the choral piece by Karen Wimhurst.
