Above The Clouds

Have you ever flown
in a plane
and climbed above
the clouds?

No matter
how dark and gray
the world below,
above the clouds
the sun is always

    Having a fear of flying (even though I have been 3 times on a jet) I have endured days on a Greyhound to avoid heights like that, but this poem seems so optimistic, it almost makes me want to hop a plane. So much spoken in few words. Good poem. Sincerely, Connie Webb PS I suppose we can float in other 'planes' above darkness, too. This poem looks like a good one to meditate on. Take care.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
