Poem Thursday No 5


Never lose an opportunity
of seeing anything that is beautiful
for beauty is God's handwriting

Welcome it in every fair face
in every fair sky, in every
fair flower and t hank God for it


By: Ralph Waldo Emerson

And I do. I will even take the plain things and be grateful for them; and for being here to enjoy these gifts.

So, so true. I like the poem. If only we stop to enjoy and appreciate the beautiful in every thing.

I love Emerson. I memorized a verse of one of his poem:
Lives of great men all remind us
We can live a life sublime
And in passing leave behind us
Footprints in the sands of time.
