         This poem was written by Kathleen O'Meara in 1869                                         Something to Ponder ...

            And people stayed at home  And read books

            And listened  And they rested

            And did exercises  And made art and played

            And learned new ways of being

            And stopped and listened  More deeply

            Someone meditated, someone prayed

            Someone met their shadow

            And people began to think differently

            And people healed

            And in the absence of people who

            Lived in ignorant ways

            Dangerous, meaningless and heartless,

            The earth also began to heal

            And when the danger ended and

            People found themselves

            They grieved for the dead

            And made new choices

            And dreamed of new visions

            And created new ways of living

            And completely healed the earth

            Just as they were healed
