February- March Poems

(Our opportunity to choose is what this poem below is about) 

"The Winds of Fate,” by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

One ship drives east, and another west,

With the self-same winds that blow.

’Tis the set of the sail, and not the gale,

Which tells us the way to go.

Like the winds of the sea are the ways of fate,

As we journey along through life;

’Tis the set of the soul that decides the goal,

And not the calm or the strife.

Goodness              -by Brent M. Jones

Goodness is the greatest good.

If only that we would measure our thoughts and deeds,

Against this standard,              instead of greed.


Stick to your task till it sticks to you;

Beginners are many, but enders are few.

Honor, power, place and praise

Will come, in time, to the one who stays.

Stick to your task till it sticks to you;

Bend at it, sweat at it, smile at it too;

"or out of the bend and the sweat and the smile

Will come life’s victories, after awhile.
