Fair Wind, by Doona Williams

Fair wind, Fairtrade,

And bring us your riches

of bush and bee.

Your packets of coffee, cocoa, tea

Are the shades of the world’s earth

And each one worth

Food for a farmer’s family,

Strength for a grower’s spirit.

Fair wind, Fairtrade,

May your cargoes of cotton

Be the chosen ones

That educate your children.

Long may your bananas

Bring us the sun

In the hosannas

Of a million smiles.
