Life's Lesson
Poet: Bernhart Paul Holst

While yet a child, on ocean's shore,
I gazed across the restless sea;
I heard the music of its roar
And wondered what it meant to me.

In those sweet years I longed to sail
Mid treasures rare of ages' lore;
I set my canvas to the gale
And steered my vessel far from shore.

With joy I sailed the summer sea
While skies were bright and winds were fair,
But storms soon disappointed me
And drove my vessel here and there.

And when arose the tempest wild,
It tossed my ship on billows wide.
It swept me back where as a child
For joy and pleasure I had sighed.

Ah ! well, if we could only know
In early years, so sweet and kind,
What joy and pleasure from us flow
As we leave childhood years behind.

 Lessons Learned In Life

Lesson Learned Every Day
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer 2011

A lesson is learned every day,
The one I learned was just today.
I learned that others can’t be pressed,
To do or act as I feel best.

I've learned that people are their own,
And only I can change the known.
If I don't like how something is,
Changing me is all there is.

So next time you come across this issue,
Don't get mad and grab a tissue.
Change the way that you react,
And that will have a positive impact.

A lesson is learned every day,
What lesson did you learn today?
Whatever it is, I'm sure it's great,
Take what you've learned, don't let it wait.

No Matter Your Age
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer 2016

There are so many lessons to learn
No wonder our parents were concerned.

We never stop learning no matter our age.
The worse of these are the years of teenage.

As we age we often find
We have to keep an open mind.

Many times we thought we knew it all
Only to realize how quick we could fall.

So no matter what your age pay attention
To the lessons that others do mention.

Life Issues
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer 2019

When faced with life issues
Don't let it give you the blues.
Look for the lesson in it
Rather than sulking and having a fit.

With every trouble comes a blessing
Don't be discouraged, it is not depressing
Often times when you look back
There was a lesson to learn not an attack.

So change your attitude and you will find
Learning life lessons can be kind.
Helping you become the person you were meant to be
Just do your best and you will see!
