Short Poem Of The Week
Right And Wrong
Poet: George MacDonald
Alas! how hardly things go right!
'Tis hard to watch on a summer's night,
For the sigh will come, and the kiss will stay,
And the summer's night is a winter's day.
Alas! how easily things go wrong!
A sigh too much or a kiss too long,
And there comes a mist and a weeping rain,
And life is never the same again.
And yet how easily things go right,
If the sigh and the kiss of the summer's night
Come deep from the soul in the stronger ray
That is born in the light of the winter's day.
And things can never go badly wrong
If the heart be true and the love be strong;
For the mist, if it comes, and the weeping rain.
Will be changed by the love into sunshine again.

Plus we offer a collection of articles and quotes at Positive Thoughts and Positive Messages
Poetic writings and rhymes have been around for centuries and have been passed down from
generation to generation. It is not just about the
rhyme but it is the meaning each sentence has that conveys meaning.
At times, a few words can express more thoughts and influence and impact a
person than a book full of writings.
Poetry can help anyone to express their feelings; are great to share, and, at times, can even change a person's thinking in a particular situation or circumstance.
They can encourage and inspire by adding a positive thought to your day.
Our site has been online since 2003 with short, brief, and to the point, poetry
and inspiring thoughts to inspire, motivate, and encourage!
Find short verses or rhymes to share with family,
colleagues, and friends. Either a brief poem, a rhyme, or just a verse can help to express
positive messages of
appreciation, love, joy, and encouragement. We hope you enjoy our collection!
