To A Disheartened Poet

O, the disheartened poet that cannot be the end And that never the end. You still have ink in your pen and strength in your hand, control the destiny. The earth hails spring in full choir and the winds kiss the perfumed garments of the earth. Trees still have leaves on them as one falls, the another rises. The night has fallen but the morn is not far behind. So all is not lost till it’s lost and till then let there be hope. Feel the spirit of the lovely spring With dreams to live up, after wintry rest. We have only one life to live. This life isn't Dress Rehearsal of a drama

Dr Ram, Congratulations on your win. I'm finally making time to read every entry, intended for me in Shadow's Hamilton depression contest. It was a tough fight, however at the end I prayed, and asked to take over and he did. WOW, it was what I call a miracle. Thanks for lifting my day with this poem... Love LINDA
