Comparison To Life


A rose is a rose.
A thorn is a thorn
and both belong together.

A rose is delicate.
A thorn is sharp
and both have things to weather.

And weather they must
in order to survive
nor neither will stay alive.

And so in our lives
we are the same.
To feel the good we must accept the pain.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
