The Gift Of Graduation


The path of life before them lies
as elated graduates take stride.
Parents' eyes focused on their footsteps
as they listen to ceremonial music with pride.

Graduates know not yet their future.
They only know they will hopefully soar..
These graduates, a product of a school
that they now will cherish even more.

Parents watch as a son/daughter embarks on life,
their endeavors and what they will be.
They wait for days with an anxious wonderment,
A graduates future long to see.

One should appreciate the gift of graduation,
and wisely choose an occupation or professional plan,
For in the end, a graduate will mighty be,
but now must rest in another hand.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
