:) Two Young Women Starting Well


Two young women starting well
How high they will finish we can not tell
Nor is this the ultimate thing
That makes the hearts of many who know them swell.

It is something special for an old heart to sing
Some deep bell even beyond their beauty rings
It may be they touch a chord of hope
In a world where to corners many it will fling.

It is not these lines where No! plays nope
It is just perhaps a glimmer of hope
That though their paths will surely greatly differ
Sometimes someone decent just seems destined for success.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
