A Poet
Poet: John McLeod 1998

And some they tilt at windmills
And some they push the plough
The Poet does both on wind-filled wings
Above the "wonder-how"!
And some may never see beyond
The bow-wave sparkling bright
To where the questing Soul will find
That broader, wiser sight.
Me thinks this sometimes Poet and Clown
Love's blessings rich endow,
To brush the stars as, through the glass
Sees much less darkly now!

A Book Of Poems
Poet: William R. Jacobs

Pond'ring o'er a gilded volume
Rich with gems, I am to-night,
Looking for the sweetest column,
Scanning for some rays of light.
Here are poets from the distance
With the softest lyric rhyme.
Calling back into existence
Sweet chords lost in lapse of time.

Here portrayed are silent faces —
Silent lips and silent eyes —
Where my finger deftly traces.
Looking for some glad surprise —
Looking for some friend who's drifting
Out upon the Western world.
For companions now uplifting
Drops of ink for drops of gold.

Lo! inwrought like fibres golden
In yon leaf upon the tree,
Are these stanzas, new and olden,
Penned in chants of melody.
Quaintest rhet'ric penned, but splendid
In simplicity and truth —
Facts and fancies; as blended
By the aged bard and youth.

As I turn the snowy pages,
Each enframed with golden wire,
Mystic sounds come back from ages.
Strains from Moore and Milton's lyre.
Dreams of Shakespeare's musing rambles,
Thoughts of Goldsmith and his fife,
Odes of Pope and Scott and Campbell
Flash across the path of life.

And when sleepily I fold them —
Fold the rhymers back in place,
Fancy's mind can quite behold them,
As the dureful hymns they trace.
Some are mothers with devotion
In their sonnets of to-day.
Others sing of field and ocean,
Mount and glen — and sweet their lay.

Unwritten Poems
Poet: Unknown

There are poems unwritten and songs unsung
Sweeter than any that ever were heard;
Poems that will wait for an angel-tongue,
Songs that long for a paradise bird;

Poems that rippled through lowliest lives,
Poems unnoted, and hidden away
Down in souls where the beautiful thrives
Sweetly as flowers in the airs of May;

Poems that only the angels above us,
Looking down deep in our hearts may behold;
Felt, though unseen by the beings who love us;
Written on lives all in letters of gold.

Sing to my soul that sweet song that thou livest;
Read me the poem that never was penned,
The wonderful idyl of Life that thou givest,
Fresh from thy spirit, Beaustiful Friend.

Verses from the poems of Famous Poets:

Poet: Sara Teasdale, 1884 - 1933

I lift my heart as a spring lifts up
A yellow daisy to the rain;
My heart will be a lovely cup
Altho' it holds but pain.
For I shall learn from flower and leaf
That color every drop they hold,
To change the lifeless wine of grief
To living gold.

Poet: Clara Edmunds-Hemingway, 1899-1958

A gull rides the waves, as if
Made for the sea,
A swallow will sail high in air
Oh let my soul rise, let it
Soar far and free;
Or mount on the high winds of care.

Will You Think Of Me?
Poet: Lillian E. Curtis

Among the many and varied forms,
Of all that you may see.
Mid life's thick and gathering storms,
Where e'er you chance to be,
Mid life's fair or clouded morns,
Will you ever think of me?

Positive poems  from our favorite Poets:

Hard Knocks
Poet: Edgar A. Guest, 1881 - 1959

I'm not the man to say that failure's sweet,
Nor tell a chap to laugh when things go wrong;
I know it hurts to have to take defeat
An' no one likes to lose before a throng;
It isn't very pleasant not to win
When you have done the very best you could;
But if you're down, get up an' buckle in -
A lickin' often does a fellow good.

I've seen some chaps who never knew their power
Until somebody knocked 'em to the floor;
I've known men who discovered in an hour
A courage they had never shown before.
I've seen 'em rise from failure to the top
By doin' things they hadn't understood
Before the day disaster made 'em drop -
A lickin' often does a fellow good.

Success is not the teacher, wise an' true,
That gruff old failure is, remember that;
She's much too apt to make a fool of you,
Which isn't true of blows that knock you flat.
Hard knocks are painful things an' hard to bear,
An' most of us would dodge 'em if we could;
There's something mighty broadening in care -
A lickin' often does a fellow good.

Poet: C D. Bradlee

The light has come, the sun is here,
Again must work begin;
And may we all, with love and fear,
God's holy favor win.
