I agree with you Sheila. But we can try can’t we? We are only human after all. The thread has produced some beauties hasn’t it. This I think will be my last, not literally...I hope! I actually sent this to a member a little while ago as he seems to have acheived this.
To laugh often and much. To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children.
To earn the appreciation of honest critics, and endure the betrayal of false friends. To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others.
To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition. To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.
Since Ray brought us back to earth from the ethereal plain we’ve all been lifted to by the great poems submitted. Can I be a bit frivilous. I expect you’re all familiar with "Come into the garden Maud". Well I pass that garden sometimes but only think of this alternative version. Come into the garden Maud, And don’t be so particular. If the grass is wet, We can do it perpendicular.
