A poem by Ella W. Wilcox

For those who enjoy beautiful prose, I shall be sharing some lovely poems with you beginning with this one by Ella Wheeler Wilcox.

WISHING

Do you wish the world were better?

Let me tell you what to do.

Set a watch upon your actions,
Keep them always straight and true.
Rid your mind of selfish motives,
Let your thoughts be clean and high.
You can make a little Eden
Of the sphere you occupy.

Do you wish the world were wise?

Well, suppose you make a start,
By accumulating wisdom
In the scrapbook of your heart;
Do not waste one page on folly;
Live to learn,
and learn to live.

If you want to give men knowledge
You must get it, ere you give.

Do you wish the world were happy?

Then remember day by day
Just to scatter seeds of kindness
As you pass along the way.

For the pleasures of the many
May be ofttimes traced to one,
As the hand that plants an acorn
Shelters armies from the sun.

**********

I wish you a lovely day today.

Should I deny? Hmm...

I love poems, since my schoolgirl days with the English Lit club. But you'll laugh at the suggestion that I'm a geek if we ever have the opportunity to meet, Mave!

Unfortunately, no one in my immediate circle of friends & family share this interest. I'd like to indulge myself here, hope you'll enjoy sharing it with me!

Share share Desi? Sure OK!

Rejoice, and men will seek you,
Grieve, and they turn and go.
They want full measure of your pleasure,
But they do not need your woe.

Betul tak?
