Take Care Of Your Garden
Poet: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Kind hearts are the gardens,
Kind thoughts are the roots,
Kind words are the flowers,
Kind deeds are the fruits,
Take care of your garden
And keep out the weeds,
Fill it with sunshine,
Kind words, and Kind deeds.

Our lives are albums, written through
With good or ill - with false or true -
And, as the blessed angels turn
The pages of our years,
God grant they read the good with smiles,
And blot the bad with tears.

The world can't see your dreams, pard.
Can't see them soar and mount;
They're big things to you, and it may seem hard.
But just what you do will count.

Time To Love
by Sarah K. Bolton
Now is the time to love, and, better still,
To serve our loved ones, over passing ill
To rise triumphant ; thus the perfect flower
Of life shall come to fruitage : wealth amass
For grandest giving ere the time be gone.
Be glad to-day, to-morrow may bring tears;
Be brave to-day, the darkest night will pass,
And golden rays will usher in the dawn:
Who conquers now shall rule the coming years.

If you are planning for a lifetime,
More Positive Poems
Poet: Wilhelmina Stitch
You're winning. You simply cannot fail.
The only obstacle is doubt;
There's not a hill you cannot scale
Once fear is put to rout.
Don't think defeat, don't talk defeat,
The word will rob you of your strength.
"I will succeed," This phrase repeat
Throughout the journey's length.

The lily's lips are pure and white without a touch of fire;
The rose's heart is warm and red and sweetened with desire.

Whose thoughts are as the lily and whose love is like the rose.

More Kindness Poem
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!

This world we're livin' in
Is mighty hard to beat;
We get a thorn with every rose -
But ain't the roses sweet!

If Spring came but once in a century,
instead of once a year,
or burst forth with the sound of an earthquake,
and not in silence,
what wonder and expectation there would be in
all hearts to behold the miraculous change.

Never a burden that He does not bear,
Never a sorrow that He does not share,

Looking to Jesus till glory doth shine,
Moment by moment, 0 Lord, I am Thine.

Lighting up the dullest day,
That brings a glow of pleasure
As we journey on Life's way.

That son blow away each storm-cloud
'Till once more we see the sun.

What's Life To You?
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, © 2015
What's your point of view.
Is life a bore?
Or is it the kicks?
Maybe its fate.

Let's check our shelve.
What does it all mean?
Is life a field of green?
Or do you need to clean?
Life can be plenty!
If you stop and,
Be happy as any.

A grateful shelter over me
When adverse winds may blow!
