Power Lines

An artic blast and storm

Brings down power lines

Leaving folk to face the winter cold

No lighting no electric

No heat to warm the house

Living in one room

And feeling old


We need the warmth of sunshine

Warm clothes in winter days

And power for central heating

In our homes

No turf fires now to warm us

Or coal or logs of wood

When power lines are down

Electric is no good


The will to live

Needs loving

Power from the heart

The love our parents gave us

Right from the very start

And in our turn the loving

We pass on to our own

And to the world around us

It will die if we disown
