I'd be surprised if it happens, but if nobody posts them beforehand, I'll post them on Saturday morning.

It was kind of hidden in another thread, and the lyrics don't seem quite complete to me. Can anybody supply corrections?

The Seasons of Peace
by Robert H. Beers

Peace is the child of spring,
Spring is the mother of May
May is the sister of love,
Who wakes at the dawning of June,

Summer's the father of all,
Fall is the rustle of leaves,
Leaves and the colors of joy,
That grow in the seasons of Peace,

Snow is the blanket of hope,
Tending the cradle of peace,
For peace is the blessing of love
That sleeps on the bosom of spring,

Soft is the coming of love,
That walks with the mother of May,
Tender the moment in June,
When peace is the child of spring.

False are the bickering reigns
Of honor, of homeland, of war
That nourish the torrents of hate,
and flow through the valleys of death,

Cold are the patriot winds
That scatter the bittering weed,
Strong are the seedlings of truth
That grow in the seasons of peace.

I think that's correct...I will listen to the LP again later tonight, but that's essentially it. Joe has asked for a midi or ABC or NWC file of the tune...hmmmmm...have never done one from scratch, but maybe....

I wrote the words down when I learned them at the Fox Hollow Festival, ca. 1970. I have only two differences (other than "a" instead of "the" and suchlike: "Of honor, of homeland, of strife" (instead of war), and "rains" instead of "reigns" (fits with the nature image). Thanks for the posting - I never wrote down who wrote it! And now, many years later, got curious.

I can echo Anne K's comments - my parents recorded this song after performing it with Bob at the White Hose for Nixon a few years before I was born. This song has been kept alive in my repertoire - a powerful reminder to what was, and how 'what was' is still oh so relevant today. But I digress - Anne K - Your lyric edits are right on the money. I have two recordings, one (raspy bad) recording on 8-track by Bob, and one LP by my folks have "Strife" and "a" and the "rain" I always felt fit better with the nature image, although only Bob's scribblings could truly echo the reality - it fits better for me. Gorgeous powerful and relatively unknown song by a man ahead of his time.
