A Flower Once Was


Don’t cry if you ever fall in the mud
For every flower once was a bud
It would’ve taken time for a tree to reach its peak
Woodpecker too at first would have failed to use his beak
A swimmer at first would’ve almost drowned
A footballer might’ve fainted while taking a round
Anyone can fall while climbing the hill at first
What you learn from the fall is to be remembered must
Don’t be in grief if despair hovers over you
Just keep faith and your dream will surely come true
Remember that before dawn the darkness is severe
After going through many halts finally comes the New Year
And you realize it’s not the end
Seeing yourself as a legend

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
