The End of the Rope
Poet: Margaret Nickerson Martin


When you've lost every vestige of hope
And you think you are beaten and done
When you've come to the end of your rope,
Tie a know in the end, and hang on.

Have courage, for here is the dope;
When you stand with your back to the wall,
Though you've come to the end of your rope,
Tie a know in the end and hang on.

Don't admit that life's getting your goat
When your friends seem to all disappear,
When you've come to the end of your rope,
Tie a know in the end and hang on.

When you've come to the end of your rope, Tie a know in the end and hang on.

Accept our gratitude, Lord,
For all the blessing thou dost give
Direct and guide our daily paths,
And teach us how to live.

Accept our gratitude, Lord...direct and guide our daily paths

Grandchildren Change Our Lives
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer


Grandchildren, bring such joy to our lives!
They make us laugh, they bring us smiles.
Adored and cherished, oh ever so much-
We love it when they come to visit us.

Seeing them brings back the youth of our days.
Life with them fills us in such lovely ways.
We are so happy by all that they do -
Grandchildren change our lives in so many ways!

Grandchildren change our lives in so many ways!

Joys Of A Garden
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer


Oh, the joys of having a garden!
Seeing all that we have grown.
Vegetables so fresh and sweet,
Flowers so beautiful and bold,
Nothing quite like it is known.
A heavenly harvest of greens and blooms,
Completing our days with endless glee.
What glories a garden bestows upon thee!

Nothing quite like it is known. A heavenly harvest of greens and blooms

Friends
Poet: Unknown


'Twould never do for God
To live across the street
Or in the house next door,
Where we should daily meet;
He sometimes sends
His angel kind, to walk with us
We call them friends.

When trouble comes, or loss,
When grief is ours to bear,
They come, our friends, with loads of cheer,
Our load to share.
How could we face defeat
Without a friend's caress?
Had we no friends to praise,
How bare would be success?

Had we no friends to praise, How bare would be success?

The Road To Happiness
Poet: Betty Stuart


Where is the road to happiness?
Can you find it on the maps?
Is it over the hill, or the other side?
Or down in the dale - perhaps?
The road to Happiness
Is a very deceiving track -
You never know when you're on it,
But - you'll see it when looking back.

the road to happiness. . . You never know when you're on it, But - you'll see it when looking back.

A Life Well Lived
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer


A life well lived is one of love,
Filled with compassion, kindness, and hugs.
What you give out comes to you tenfold,
Bringing joy to hearts that can't be told.
Kind words and actions are a must do,
Smiles and laughter in everything you do.
Through love and understanding you brighten the days
You touch others' lives in many positive ways.

A life well lived is one of love, Filled with compassion, kindness and hugs.

Love's Blindness
Poet: John Kendrick Bangs


They say Love's blind, and cannot clearly see
What he is at, or where he'll shortly be;
Yet where a Heart lies open, and awake.
And waiting patiently for Love's own sake,
Blind though he is, he goes unerringly.
Nor needs a guide by night or day
To point the way!


They say Love 's blind, and cannot clearly see

Short Poem For The Week of January 23, 2023

Failures
Poet: Edgar A. Guest


'Tis better to have tried in vain.
Sincerely striving for a goal.
Than to have lived upon the plain.
An idle and a timid soul.

'Tis better to have fought and spent
Your courage, missing all applause. . .

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  positive thoughts 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.
