Room for All - Óndra Lysohorsky

From my source the gathering waters have been flowing since time began

Hundreds of wars have I seen, and millions of warriors,
Led, clad, weaponed differently in every century,
But always spilling the same blood.

What do the hills around me
And the sky above me still harbour?
I hear the people on both my banks.
They build no bridges for reconciliation.

But I must flow,
But I must hear;
But I must see,
From the source to the ocean
For in me there is room for all.

Óndra Lysohorsky (1905 - 1989) Czechoslovakia
real name Ervín Goj
