Self Study


Inside. Outside. There’s work needing to be done.
It matters not whether the cost is little or a lot,
Whether it’s sunny or stormy, cold or hot.

Yes, I’ve some work to do, inside and outside~
Undoing some of the actions, the damage that I’ve done,
All too often it’s neither easy nor fun.

Inside. Outside. There’s work needing to be done.
A dressing up of attitudes, both the old and the new~
A purging of impressions, many or few,

Yes, I’ve still some work to do, inside, outside,
A planting of fresh seeds and some pulling out of old weeds~
Issues to address, dealing with wants, with needs.

Inside and outside, I’ve still some work to do~
A sharing of joy and some happiness to bring,
New lines to learn, to practice, new songs to sing.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
