Sonnet: Amazing Growth


The tree-trunk cut flush to the soil surface
Has branches sprouting new, those grow with speed;
Amazingly, revengefully in pace,
That far exceeds that seen from any seed!

All wild plants cut grow luxuriantly fast,
Much faster than fruit trees those were razed down;
All vices stopped return worse than in past,
But virtues lost are like a meadow gone!

Vine twigs trimmed put forth branches with fruits more,
With aim to better bear in lesser time;
When trials, tribulations and strife pour,
Man’s mind, heart, spirit, soul become sublime!

Like gardener pruning plants for better yield,
The soul with grace becomes God’s glorious field!

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
