1.
Solitude
Laugh, and the world laughs with you;
Weep, and you weep alone.
For the sad old earth must borrow its mirth,
But has trouble enough of its own.
...
2.
"It Might Have Been"
We will be what we could be. Do not say,
"It might have been, had not this, or that, or this."
No fate can keep us from the chosen way;
He only might who is.
...
3.
A Fallen Leaf
A trusting little leaf of green,
A bold audacious frost;
A rendezvous, a kiss or two,
And youth for ever lost.
...
4.
As You Go Through Life
Don’t look for the flaws as you go through life;
And even when you find them,
It is wise and kind to be somewhat blind
And look for the virtue behind them.
...
5.
A Golden Day
The subtle beauty of this day
Hangs o'er me like a fairy spell,
And care and grief have flown away,
And every breeze sings, "all is well."

I had an NDE experience and before I was sent back, I was given a message, " Laugh, and the world laughs with you" . I never knew it was the first line of a poem or even what kind of deeper meaning that message had. Years later, I decided to google the words and I found this page. Now that I've seen it's a poem and the entire thing, it's now clear to me what they were saying to me on the other side.

I believe I once read a poem of E.W.W. in which the parallel is drawn between the attitude of Christian churchgoers toward a young man who got a girl pregnant and the girl who became pregnant. Does anyone know the title of that poem?

To Marry or not to Marry? Love is Enough, Be Not Attached. I am planning on giving this booklet away as a gift...hhmm should I. This person knows nothing of Ellz Wilcox. any answers..

I have a treasury of poems of ella wheeler wilcox and there is a poem in it that you have not got. It is called Secret Thoughts. I have not checked if all poems from this book are in there yet. Book is called An Ella Wheeler Wilcox Treasury. Publishers Leopold B Hill London. It has a inscription on front page dated 1918, so is old.

Ella Wheeler Wilcox - I don't tire of reading her poetry. Somehow it reaches a part of my soul where nothing else has access.

Hi.., I read your po'em; 'Which are You? '....And I wanted to share with you, that I do not believe I am either..., type of person you, maybe describing within your po'em. Is the glass half-full.., or half-empty..., My opinion..., maybe it is balanced. I enjoyed the reading of your po'em. I found it very much to my liking. Good day
