The smallestA hero to follow!


 

To the best hydrologist:

John the Baptist!

 


 
  His father lost his voice
his mother kept it secret,
from the womb he was filled
with the joy of perfect love.
 
Eating locust and honey
he proclaimed by the desert,
in faithful and straight road
the kingdom is clearly seen.
 
Let every mountain be cut
and every valley be filled,
let all division be stopped
for equilibrium to win.
 
Understood the use of water
summoned us to sincere fruit,
vital submersion of faults
reconciliation in fullness.
 
He announced that he was not
that in fire another followed,
he warned us he uses the ax
to cut down all hypocrisy.

Peace talks
 

Let every mountain be cut
and every valley be filled,
let all division be stopped
for equilibrium to win.
 
By a dove and voice he knew
the appointed time has come,
and understanding his destiny
he lived to become small.
 
And though in praise he said
no greater from woman lives,
the smallest in God’s reign
shall be o greater than him.
 
Let every mountain be cut
and every valley be filled,
let all division be stopped
for equilibrium to win.
