Abstract The poetry here is related to the 10 Year Crusade: 1953-1963. I began my pioneering life during this period and this poetry brings together secular, Bahá'í and personal history.
Notes Shoghi Effendi said, in one of his last letters during this Crusade, written in April 1957, that global society was "hovering on the brink of self-destruction." There was a certain urgency in this time period; there was Ike Eisenhower, rock and roll, Mr. Clean, Doris Day and luxury without stress. One of the greatest periods in the expansion of the Bahá'í Faith occurred at this time. The Kingdom of God on Earth began in this period--in 1953. These poems were written about themes and events, ideas and activities in the years of this Plan and the 2nd epoch(1944-1963) of the Formative Age.
