A thought to begin each day (poem)


As you go about each day
Take some time to laugh and play
Sing a song and tell some jokes
Share a tale and be kind to folks
Learn a little and care a lot
Don’t be envious of what others got
Love your parents and sister too
And the life you lead will be good to you

    Well, this little poem really says a lot. I truly do love my Mom and my sister, but I've always thought my sister was the favourite, well she is. I just have to get over it. Isn't this rediculous at my age. Silly me. I love this poem, it makes one think about their selfish thoughts. Hmmmmm (Excellent poem Dave) (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
