Sagacious words

Poetry is a deal of joy and pain and wonder, with a dash of the dictionary. ~ Khalil Gibran

Lessons of life

Quietly, quietly the night moves,
As the day steals away breath,
In a paradise lost,
Humility of strength proves
To create a trust.

In weakness and in health,
the harder
the test,
the better
the result.

Gently, gently the breeze sings,
As lies lead the way to death,
at hell's own cost,
Courage over fear brings
A divine crust-

In happiness and in wealth,
the deeper
the rest,
the wiser
the touch.
