Short Poem Of The Week

The Future Gleams
Poet: Mary C. Ryan

The future gleams with beauteous light,
Life's far-off isles are green;
Un tasted joys are always bright,
The distant sea serene.
And sunlight shining through the rain
Gives the bright bow its form;
Whose gorgeous tints will even then
Evanish in the storm.

Delusion hides her snares and griefs,
In meshes strangely fair,
Wise men are wrecked on Beauty's reefs,
And sink in dark despair.
Though phantom hopes of joy and love,
May sweetly charm the ear,
They, to our woe, oft bubbles prove.
And pass away in air.

But stem life's tide. Do not despair
Beneath a midnight sky,
For silently the morning fair
Is surely drawing nigh.
Even though the heart is racked with pain.
Frowns will those pangs increase,
While smiles, like sunshine through the rain.
Will form Hope's bow of peace.

Poetic writings and rhymes have been around for centuries and have been passed down from generation to generation. It is not just about the rhyme but it is the meaning each sentence has that conveys meaning.  At times, a few words can express more thoughts and influence and impact a person than a book full of writings.

Poetry can help anyone to express their feelings; are great to share, and, at times, can even change a person's thinking in a particular situation or circumstance. They can encourage and inspire by adding a positive thought to your day.

As L.V. Seachild said, "Poems tell a story - it's just that the words rhyme." Stories can inspire us and give us hope. They can teach us lessons we otherwise may not experience. And poems are a way of expressing and sharing thoughts and experiences. So let the rhyme in these verses tell a story for you.

Our site has been online since 2003 with short, brief, and to the point, poetry and inspiring thoughts to inspire, motivate, and encourage! Our goal is to provide the best short poems, verses or rhymes to share with family, colleagues, and friends. Either a brief poem, a rhyme, or just a verse can help to express positive messages of appreciation, love, joy, and encouragement. We hope you enjoy our collections of short poems!
