Life Can Mesmerize with Smiles


Life can mesmerize with smiles;
But when it weeps beware, beware:
Your tears would fill a mountain stream
That's rushing past, before Life care.

And when you laugh, you laugh alone,
Though you might think the flowers too
Would giggle at a word you said;
The flowers thoughts are very few.

We are not often understood;
The world speaks in different tongues,
Though we may think that ours would be
The only universal one.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
