An Unusual Encounter Teaches

Two lovers were in search of a bottle of wine
To share as part of a setting for a romantic dine
Searching a remote New York town all around
Nowhere could an open store be found
When an encounter pursued by chance
A wonderful lady was asked at a glance
A gracious offering to the lovers she made
Amazed, the appreciative couple accepted her aid
To her home she did escort
And she searched for the best bottle of port
The bottle of Brunello Di Montalcino spirited the mood
Arousing the sensations of the food
But this is not all to this encounter
For these strangers learned things can be sounder
Sounder between two peoples far away
Fighting each other every day
Why must this be?
Can they not see?
We are all God’s children living to be free
In a land along the Mediterranean Sea
You see the lovers are a Palestinian pair
And the wonderful lady is Jewish who did care
Care to offer her generosity
To fulfill a night of intimacy
But it really goes beyond all that
It tells us that if the two sides just sat
Sat down and felt the warmth of the lady that night
Embrace each other and talk to bring forth light
The light shining down from God on all the land
The land of Abraham, Jesus and Mohammad with all its sand
