What is a DAD? Poem for Father’s Day

A DAD is a person

Who’s loving and kind,

And often he knows

What you have on your mind,

He’s someone who listens

Suggests and defends…

A dad can be one

Of your very best friends!

He’s proud of your triumphs,

But when things go wrong,

A dad can be patient

And helpful and strong.

In all that you do

A dad’s love plays a part –

There’s always a place for him

Deep in your heart-

And each year that passes

You’re even more glad

More grateful and proud

Just to call him your dad!

Best known for the many books she has authored, Maya was a beautiful human being and writer in every way.

“She lived a life as a teacher, activist, artist and human being, She was a warrior for equality, tolerance and peace.” Quote by Guy B Johnson from the official website.

My mission in Life by Maya Angelou

My mission in Life by Maya Angelou

“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humour, and some style.”

“Never make someone a priority when all you are to them is an option.”

“Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud.”

“Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.”

“Stepping onto a brand new path is difficult, but not more difficult than remaining in a situation, which is not nurturing to the whole woman.”

“Nothing will work unless you do.”

“You alone are enough, you have nothing to prove to anybody.”

“It’s one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself, to forgive. Forgive everybody.”

“Be a rainbow in someone else’s cloud.”

“You may shoot me with your words, you may cut me with your eyes, you may kill me with your hatefulness, but still like AIR, I’LL RISE.”

“All great achievements require time.”

“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

“You will face many defeats in your life, but never let yourself be defeated.”

“No matter happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on and it will be better tomorrow.”

June Poem – June

Month of June Scene

Month of June Scene

Poem for the Month of June

Gazed upon the glorious sky

And the green mountains round,

And thought that when I came to lie

At rest within the ground,

‘T were pleasant, that in flowery June,

When brooks send up a cheerful tune,

And groves a joyous sound,

The sexton’s hand, my grave to make,

The rich, green mountain-turf should break.

A cell within the frozen mould,

A coffin borne through sleet,

And icy clods above it rolled,

While fierce the tempests beat–

Away!–I will not think of these–

Blue be the sky and soft the breeze,

Earth green beneath the feet,

And be the damp mould gently pressed

Into my narrow place of rest.

There through the long, long summer hours

The golden light should lie,

And thick young herbs and groups of flowers

Stand in their beauty by.

The oriole should build and tell

His love-tale close beside my cell;

The idle butterfly

Should rest him there, and there be heard

The housewife bee and humming-bird.

And what if cheerful shouts at noon

Come, from the village sent,

Or song of maids, beneath the moon

With fairy laughter blent?

And what if, in the evening light,

Betrothèd lovers walk in sight

Of my low monument?

I would the lovely scene around

Might know no sadder sight nor sound.

I know that I no more should see

The season’s glorious show,

Nor would its brightness shine for me,

Nor its wild music flow;

But if, around my place of sleep,

The friends I love should come to weep,

They might not haste to go.

Soft airs, and song, and light, and bloom

Should keep them lingering by my tomb.

These to their softened hearts should bear

The thought of what has been,

And speak of one who cannot share

The gladness of the scene;

Whose part, in all the pomp that fills

The circuit of the summer hills,

Is that his grave is green;

And deeply would their hearts rejoice

To hear again his living voice.

 By William Cullen Bryant
