All Hope - Poem by Bill Smith

All hope lies in tomorrow
Betrayed by yesterday
For every new horizon
There is a price to pay
The piper plays his tune
Holds out a hand for gilt
The memory cries a river
The wrong side of spilt milk

All hope lies in tomorrow
Forgetting yesterday
All hope is stored in thoughts
Arranged to form a play
There’s laughter and there’s intrigue
There’s sadness and there’s pain
Yet by the final act
Laughter rules again

All hope lies in tomorrow
Aphrodite by my side
To walk a brave new world
Athena as my guide
All hope lies in tomorrow
Under Helios’s light
To trust tomorrow to Themis
Her justice and her right

    This is a great poem Bill, there is lyric, there is poetry, there is philosophy and
    education!

    Well constructed. You Brits have the advantage over us. You use classic metaphors the way you breathe. We don't have any of that. (Report) Reply

    top-notch structure and form, Bill, but more impressive is the great flow, elevated subject and classic references. wonderful work. -Tailor B. (Report) Reply
