Poems About Life

Poet: George Eliot

You love the roses - so do I. I wish
The sky would rain down roses, as they rain
From off the shaken bush. Why will it not?
Then all the valley would be pink and white
And soft to tread on. They would fall as light
As feathers, smelling sweet; and it would be
Like sleeping and like waking, all at once!

all hearts to behold the miraculous change.

Counting an endless repetition

It Is

It's the little bit of sunshine
Lighting up the dullest day,

Like a willing kindness done,
That son blow away each storm-cloud
'Till once more we see the sun.

Good Morning Poems

What's Life To You?
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, 2015

One, two,
What's your point of view.
Three, four,
Is life a bore?
Five, six,
Or is it the kicks?
Seven, eight,
Maybe its fate.
Nine, Ten,
Let's think again.
Eleven, twelve,
Let's check our shelve.
Thirteen, fourteen,
What does it all mean?
Fifteen, sixteen,
Is life a field of green?
Seventeen, eighteen,
Or do you need to clean?
Nineteen, twenty,
Life can be plenty!
If you stop and,
Be happy as any.

Verses About Friendship

Poet: John Imrie

The friendship of the good and true
Is more to me than gold,

I'll treasure well the old;
Old friends are like the goodly tree
Whose leafy branches throw
A grateful shelter over me
When adverse winds may blow!

Lemon Pie

The world is full of gladness,
There are joys of many kinds,
There's a cure for every sadness,
That each troubled mortal finds.
And my little cares grow lighter
And I cease to fret and sigh,
And my eyes with joy grow brighter
When she makes a lemon pie.
