Dr. John Brown wrote, "Poetry is the expression of the beautiful - by words - the beautiful of the outer and of the inner world; whatever is delectable to the eye or the ear, the every sense of the body and of the soul — it presides over veras dulcedines rerum. It implies at once a vision and a faculty, a gift and an art. There must be the vivid conception of the beautiful, and its fit manifestation in language. A thought may be poetical, and yet not poetry; it may be a sort of mother liquor, holding in solution the poetical element, but waiting and wanting its precipitation, — its concentration into the bright and compacted crystal.

It is the very blossom and fragrancy and bloom of all human thoughts, passions, emotions, language; having for its immediate object — its very essence — pleasure and delectation rather than truth; but springing from truth, as the flower from its fixed and unseen root."

Poem For The Week of February 6, 2023

A mom's heart leaves no doubt A never-ending devotion to you.

Always There
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer


A mother's love is always there,
From the moment you were born,
It reaches far beyond compare,
It's the love that never torn.

No matter how life turns out,
Whether happy or blue,
A mom's heart leaves no doubt
A never-ending devotion to you.

Her faith always large and strong,
She stands no matter what comes her way,
Offering up a loving song,
That guides us through each day.

No force of will can break her hold;
The power of a mother’s heart;
For unconditional love is bold –
For children even when apart.

Poem For The Week of January 30, 2023

Simple words like Thank You and I appreciate you Will be appreciated even though they are few.

Few Words
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer


The gratitude in each heart can be seen,
With words that you mean.
Simple words like "Thank You" and "I appreciate you"
Will be appreciated even though they are few.

A simple act of giving and love
Can speak loud enough without rising above.
For it shows what’s really inside the soul,
My words may be few but my appreciation is whole.

Poem For The Week of January 23, 2023

For he who tries and fails may be The founder of a better day

Failures
Poet: Edgar A. Guest


'Tis better to have tried in vain.
Sincerely striving for a goal.
Than to have lived upon the plain.
An idle and a timid soul.

'Tis better to have fought and spent
Your courage, missing all applause.
Than to have lived in smug content
And never ventured for a cause.

For he who tries and fails may be
The founder of a better day;
Though never his the victory,
From him shall others learn the way.

Poem For The Week of January 16, 2023

Oh feel the joy and see the light, A show of kindness can ignite

A Show Of Kindness
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer


Oh feel the joy and see the light,
A show of kindness can ignite,
Ones heart will start to take flight
For even little acts make a difference bright.

When helping out with kind words or deeds,
An increase in love one shall see,
The warmth expands both far and near,
And ripples outward with nothing to fear.

Little small gestures like these,
Can fill hearts overflowing with ease
Tangible love and lots of smiles,
Spreading kindness from miles to miles.

Never hesitate to say thank you

A Simple Thank You
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer


A simple thank you
Can mean so much.
Especially to one
We love and trust.

Saying these words
To one who is true,
Expresses appreciation
For them from you.

Never hesitate to
Say "thank you".
Express appreciation for
What they do!

Poem For The Week of January 2, 2023

Foolish things are frowns and sneers. For angry thoughts reveal them

Angry Looks
Poet: John Burbidge


Angry looks can do no good,
And blows are dealt in blindness;
Words are better understood.
If spoke but in kindness.

Simple love far more hath wrought.
Although by childhood uttered.
Than all the battles ever fought.
Or oaths that men have uttered.

Friendship oft would longer last.
And quarrels be prevented.
If little words were let go past.
Forgiven, not resented.

Foolish things are frowns and sneers.
For angry thoughts reveal them;
Rather drown them all in tears
Than let another feel them.
