The Birth Of Hope

A poem of hope that describes the feeling of being hopeless and then when our hope returns things change. Having hope can change our outlook and how we see things - the verses reflect dead leaves, a bleak way being hopeless But, then when we have hope our outlook changes - the verses reflect pathways of flowers and light. Two complete opposites. We hope the poem encourages you to look forward with the hope of things possible.

The Birth Of Hope
by Douglas Malloch


Last night the path of life was drear
And dead leaves shivered in the breeze.
Last night the world was bleak and blear.
And want and sorrow, pain and fear,
Lurked in the shadows of the trees.

Dead leaves, dead leaves of other days.
Touched by the frost of fate unkind,
Lay clustered deep in woodland ways
Or hurried over frozen bays,
Urged by an unrelenting wind.

But lo! the new year and the morn
Came with the passing of the night.
Another life and world were born —
The sable curtains, rent and torn.
Revealed a vista fair and bright.

The trees, new-leaved, are filled with bloom —
The buds of new and happy hours.
Gone are the midnight and the gloom,
And golden shafts of light illume
Hope's fragrant pathway strewn with flowers.
