Clap It Together!


Take the words, the books, the ink,
Infuse love, emotion, thought, passion,
Stir with power, endurance, pain,
Don't let it become raw in time.
Clap it together!
And you get a masterpiece.

Hold your knowledge and dignity,
Fear not the mighty waves,
For encumbrances go too soon,
But beware of those that block your way.
Clap it together!
And there's wisdom in the lad.

Be cool, calm, contented, clear,
And steer your way through the mist,
Collect the pebbles before the rocks,
And put the reins before the race.
Clap it together!
And there's a success.

Have hope, faith and cool,
Obliterate darkness around you,
Keep your feet upon the ground,
And spread your wings and close your eyes.
Clap it together!
And you'll feel bliss.

Read this poem once or twice,
Close your eyes and paint,
Let the doors be open wide,
Make little room for this covey.
Clap it together!
And you'll get what I mean.

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
