Don't Weep for America


Don't weep for America,
For the world that was-
It was always more an idea
Than a place;
Always more an ideal-
With grace.

Don't weep for America;
It will rise again,
Some other place,
It will all begin:
It was an idea ahead of time,
Earthly heaven by man's design.

Don't weep for America;
Some things must fail,
And be rebuilt
With brand new nails;

Don't weep- keep looking
Around to find
The new America-
Is in your mind.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
