Treasure Island

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 Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
