Consequences


Happiness and sadness
Both in contrast
You are happy to have finished
But sad to come last

Sadness and happiness
Together as one
You are happy it’s not raining
But sad there’s no sun

Happiness and sadness
Always together
You are happy that you passed
But sad you aren’t clever

Sadness and happiness
Come in a pair
You're happy it’s only a dream
But sad it’s a nightmare

Sadness and happiness
Build confidence
But at certain times
Lead to consequence

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
