#146 / One Poem A Day

I enjoy getting my "poem-a-day" from the Academy of American Poets. These poems come free, too! Click the link if you would like to sign up. 

On Saturday, January 18, 2020, the following poem came into my email inbox. Myra Viola Wilds (pictured below) expresses very nicely, I think, why I write these daily blog postings. 

I find her thoughts appropriate for all of us, bloggers, poets, or not!


What kind of thoughts now, do you carry
In your travels day by day
Are they bright and lofty visions,
Or neglected, gone astray?

Matters not how great in fancy,
Or what deeds of skill you’ve wrought;
Man, though high may be his station,
Is no better than his thoughts.

Catch your thoughts and hold them tightly,
Let each one an honor be;
Purge them, scourge them, burnish brightly,
Then in love set each one free.
