Use It

Machine or
A living body
Life's not
Lying idle and counting time...
It's expected to work
Under stated conditions.

Keep it moving
Keep on using
Idleness only leeds
To a useless state
Moderate use
Keeps it alive.

Dancer or singer
Artist or athlete
Practices and practices
To render a performance
Flawless and perfect
To delight us all.

A machine left idle
Rusts and deteriorates
Doesn't start
When needed
Use it and maintain it
It'll serve us well.

Service's function
Service's purpose
Service's duty
Service's life
Let's not forget
Awake from a dream.

Poem of the Day

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
