Rookie (January 31)

Gifted


Have you ever raced against
Someone so much speedier
That the difference between you two
Was between glacier and meteor
And if you have,
Have you felt the thrill
Of watching brilliance at its best
Reaching higher still
Do know of the oft forgotten
Little treasure
That life brings with one's loss
Is a pure simple pleasure
Of being left very far behind
But knowing
That you've witnessed
A new feat be defined

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
