  1. One Lesson
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, © 2020

    One lesson in life I learned at an early age
    That there is learning at every stage.
    What I thought I knew all about
    Was only wrong and I saw fallout.

    The best thing that I heard from the preacher
    Is that failure is truly a teacher
    Stand back and learn from it
    It can teach you quite a bit.

    Don't hold grudges, do forgive
    Live your life finding the positive
    Find the good, forget the bad
    Then you find happiness, not the sad.

    Learn one thing each day
    And you will find others will say,
    "He knows so much, when did he get smart?"
    And with that I will impart -

    Just keep learning through your mistakes
    Don't give up, you have what it takes!

  2. Life's Lessons In the Flowers
    Poet: C. C. Hassler

    The frost fell crisp and white upon
    A bright October morn;
    The flowers that bloomed in beauty are,
    Alas, of beauty shorn.
    The rose with fragrance sweet that bloomed,
    Has drooped its crimson head.
    And like the modest pansy lies
    All withered, bleak and dead.
    The frost King — harsh, relentless — touched,
    As with a magic wand,
    The summer beauties as the sere
    October morning dawned.

    Thus life's fond hopes' and longings oft
    Will vanish in a day.
    And like the flowers that bud and bloom
    Pass silently away.
    Youth, with its pleasures, quickly fades,
    But love's young dream oft told,
    Thank God, outlives the chillng frost
    To cheer us when we're old.
    And blooms anew each day and year
    Beneath the warmth and glow
    Of summer's sun. as first it did.
    Long, long, bright years ago.

    So let us cherish all the joys
    That summer's bloom imparts,
    And fold them tenderly and safe
    Wiithin our care-worn hearts.
    Some glad, bright morn they'll bloom again —
    Some glad, bright day we'll see
    The wisdom of the Hand that shapes
    Life's path for you and me.
    And far more joyous will it be
    Their glad return to greet;
    Bright bud and blossom cheering us
    With fragrance new and sweet.

  3. A Lesson We Should Heed
    Poet: Unknown

    Here's a lesson all should heed —
    Try, try again.
    If at first you don't succeed,
    Try, try, try again.
    Let your courage well appear;
    If you only persevere,
    You will conquer, never fear —
    Try, try, try again.

    Twice or thrice though you should fail,
    Try again.
    If at last you would prevail,
    Try again.
    When you strive, there's no disgrace,
    Though you fail to win the race;
    Bravely then, in such a case,
    Try, try, try again.

    Let the thing be e'er so hard,
    Try again.
    Time will surely bring reward —
    Try again.
    That which other folks can do,
    Why, with patience, may not you?
    Try, Try, Try Again

  4. A Nobler Way
    Poet: Rev James Allison Barnes

    To live and learn, to ever think the thought
    That gives a richness to the soul's ideals.
    Is better far than letting self, when sought,
    Become supreme in all one thinks and feels.
    To rise above the sordid quest for gain,
    And strive to use in nobler ways the soul,
    Which finds its bent, its true, divinest aim
    In pressing upward, never downward, towards its goal.

  5. Lessons Learn
    Poet: Unknown

    Learn to laugh.
    A good laugh is better than medicine.
    Learn how to tell a story.
    A good story is as welcome as a sunbeam in a sickroom.

    Learn to keep your own troubles to yourself.
    The world is too busy to care for your ills and sorrows.
    Learn not to croak. If you cannot see any good in the world,
    Keep the bad to yourself.

    Learn to hide your aches and pains
    under a pleasant smile.
    Learn to meet your friends with a smile.
