The Song of Life


The morning blushes,
With a capricious smile,
The mounting Sun
With the hour's dial,
I wake up straight,
From my cozy bed
With a street to walk
With a song unplayed,
I sing my words,
And Others' too
And try to concoct,
A song, an oeuvre anew
But the chords break,
In the amateur attempt
Helpless I gape
With hatred and contempt,
But I muster my blood,
My shattered bones
And pull the Strings
To sing another jolly tone!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
