For Everything There Is A Season
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, © 2019
Life is full of change
If it wasn't it would be so strange
Everything would remain the same
It would be like playing a boring game.
For everything, there is a season
And always a good reason
We may not see it now
But all progress it does allow
Imagine if no progress was made
If change just made us all afraid.
Alter your attitude and look for the good
Let things evolve as they should.
Change In Plans
Poet: Julie Hebert, © 2012
I sit here not sure,
Of what to say.
But I wonder why,
You're not on your way.
What changed your mind,
What swayed you away?
What is your reason,
You want to stay?
You had such plans,
Such wonderful plans.
I thought in time,
You'd have many fans.
Whatever made you
Doubt your view.
I hope you know,
I believe in you.
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, ©2015
There comes a time in each of our lives,
That change is bound to happen.
It's what we do with that change,
That will judge if we get flattened.
Change can come in many ways,
And this we've all seen.
Change can be good in every case,
Sometimes it takes finding that in between.
Don't allow yourself to see only bad,
As every situation has its good.
Change can be a wonderful thing,
It's sometimes misunderstood.
So from this moment on we will all move forward,
To a change that will be imitating but fun.
It's up to us to make our life as we see it,
So look forward to what you have won.
Poet: Edgar A Guest
Life is a struggle for peace,
A longing for rest,
A hope for the battles to cease,
A dream for the best;
And he is not living who stays
Contented with things,
Unconcerned with the work of the days
And all that it brings.
He is dead who sees nothing to change,
No wrong to make right;
Who travels no new way or strange
In search of the light;
Who never sets out for a goal
That he sees from afar
But contents his indifferent soul
With things as they are.
Life isn't rest --- it is toil;
It is building a dream;
It is tilling a parcel of soil
Or bridging a stream;
It's pursuing the light of a star
That but dimly we see,
And in wresting from things as they are
The joy that should be.
Riches And Power
Poet: Charles Mackay
Cleon has a million acres,
Ne'er a one have I;
Cleon dwelleth in a palace,
In a cottage I.
Cleon hath a dozen fortunes,
Not a penny I;
Yet the poorer of the twain is
Cleon, and not I.
Cleon, true, possesseth acres,
But the landscape I;
Half the charms to me it yieldeth,
Money cannot buy.
Cleon harbors sloth and dullness,
Freshening vigor I;
He in velvet, I in fustian,
Richer man am I.
Cleon is a slave to grandeur,
Free as thought am I;
Cleon fees a score of doctors,
Need of none have I.
Cleon fears to die.
Death may come, he'll find me ready.
Happier man am I.
Cleon sees no charm in nature,
In a daisy I;
Cleon hears no anthem ringing
In the sea and sky;
Nature sings to me forever,
Earnest listener I!
State for state, with all attendants,
Who would change? Not I.
Everything changes in life, nothing remains the same forever. Change is constant. The same is true with love, it changes as time
marches on. The poem below reflects the Poet's thoughts on love changing.
Poet: Robert Bridges
So sweet love seemed that April morn.
When first we kissed beside the thorn,
So strangely sweet, it was not strange
We thought that love could never change.
But I can tell — let truth be told —
That love will change in growing old;
Though day by day is naught to see,
So delicate his motions be.
And in the end 'twill come to pass
Quite to forget what once he was,
Nor even in fancy to recall
The pleasure that was all in all.
His little spring, that sweet we found.
So deep in summer floods is drowned,
I wonder, bathed in joy complete.
How love so young could be so sweet.
Full Of Change
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer
Life is full of change
Some of it feels strange.
But from the moment you are born
From the blooming rose to a thorn.
We can accept it and look for the good
Or we can fight it like no other would
But without change what a boring place
Change is good if you do embrace.
