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!

Hold Fast Your Dreams
Poet: Louise Driscoll, 1875 - 1957

Hold fast your dreams!
Within your heart
Keep one still, secret spot
Where dreams may go,
And, sheltered so,
May thrive and grow
Where doubt and fear are not.
O keep a place apart,
Within your heart,
For little dreams to go!

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.

A positive poem from one of 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.
