Stand Tall


At the end of the day
When the battle is won
When all have had their say
And the shouting is done

When the hard mile’s been walked
When the dragon’s been slew
When the talking’s been talked
And the struggle is through

When enemies are beat
And the conflict’s at rest
When victory's complete
And you’ve stood to the test

Stand up tall and be proud
For you did what was right
Neither broken now bowed
Know you bested the fight

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
