Hither, child, hither,
A tale I must share,
Of a time long gone,
A time of freedom,
Of life, of love,
Of joy unbound,
A time that might still be.

Much there was,
Much to share,
Much to keep,
Much to let you be,
To sleep in peace,
It was a time of need.

Time now is that of want,
Abundance there is,
And we make more,
And yet more we want,
We want to have what we do not need,
And what we need but can no more see.
