Invictus: poem of the day

INVICTUS BY WILLIAM ERNEST HENLEY Out of the night that covers me, Black as the pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods may be For my unconquerable soul.In the fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud.Under the bludgeonings of chance My head is bloody, but unbowed.Beyond this place of wrathContinue reading “Invictus: poem of the day”

When great trees fall: poem of the day

WHEN GREAT TREES FALL By Maya Angelou When great trees fall,rocks on distant hills shudder,lions hunker downin tall grasses,and even elephantslumber after safety.When great trees fallin forests,small things recoil into silence,their senseseroded beyond fear.When great souls die, the air around us becomeslight, rare, sterile.We breathe, briefly.Our eyes, briefly,see witha hurtful clarity.Our memory, suddenly sharpened,examines,gnaws onContinue reading “When great trees fall: poem of the day”

Roadways: poem of the day

ROADWAYSBy John Masefield One road leads to London, One road leads to Wales,My road leads me seawards To the white dipping sails.One road leads to the river, As it goes singing slow;My road leads to shipping, Where the bronzed sailors go.Leads me, lures me, calls me To salt green tossing sea;A road without earth’s road-dustContinue reading “Roadways: poem of the day”

What’s the use ofContinue reading “It’s fine today: poem of the day”

LOVE’S  LANGUAGE By Ella Wheeler Wilcox How does Love speak?In the faint flush upon the telltale cheek,And in the pallor that succeeds it; byThe quivering lid of an averted eye–The smile that proves the parent to a sighThus doth Love speak. How does Love speak?By the uneven heart-throbs, and the freakOf bounding pulses that standContinue reading “Love’s language”

See it through: poem of the day

SEE IT THROUGH By Edgar Guest When you’re up against a trouble, Meet it squarely, face to face;Lift your chin and set your shoulders, Plant your feet and take a brace.When it’s vain to try to dodge it, Do the best that you can do;You may fail, but you may conquer, See it through!
