A Grandchild Gives New Hope In Life


A GRANDCHILD GIVES NEW HOPE IN LIFE

A grandchild gives new hope in life
An old man plays and says nonsense
And is happy again-

A little smiling child
Who does not know or understand
Who cannot speak to me
Gives me hope again
And makes me forget
All my failed ambitions-

Because this small child lives
I regain my love of life-

What a blessing to be
A grandfather in my old age.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
