Dream of Albert Schweitzer

I'm teaching a Health class to high school
students who are not paying attention.
Wandered across the hall to some lab,
see Albert Schweitzer and ask for help—

He wraps his arm around mine and comes
to my classroom— I tell the class this is
Albert Schweitzer, Peace Nobel Laureate,
and medicine man from Gabon, Africa.

You may have seen him on covers
of Life and Time magazines,
he's an expert playing Bach on the organ
as well as an authority on philosophy.

Those who has read Madeleine L'Engle's
A Wrinkle in Time may recognize him
as a "Warrior of Light"— certainly
he has lighted my way in science & life.

The class is now quiet and attentive.
Seating next to me is 80-year-old poet
Margaret Mullen who tells me "Surprised
you've invited such an important guest.

I don't want to miss a single word."
Schweitzer says "My specialty is tropical
medicine. There are thousands of diseases
but only one health. So stay healthy."
