All Things Pass
by Helen Steiner Rice
Let all your thoughts be happy, dear,
To chase away all thoughts of fear.
Think of lovely things you’ve see
Like rolling slopes of velvet green,
Fluffy clouds of azure blue
Sparkling drops of crystal dew,
Robin redbreasts on the wing
Telling us again it’s spring
Golden beds of daffodils,
Violets blooming on a hill…
Don’t cloud your mind with anxious fear,
Just fill your heart with sunny cheer
And waiting days will soon be over
And you’ll again be back in clover
For all things pass…and this will, too,
And with God’s help you'll come SMILING through.
I can never say enough good about the poems of Helen Steiner Rice. She seems to write from the heart.
After yesterday’s rather discouraging post, I thought I’d better redeem myself with something inspirational today. I even spent a little time in selecting some of my favorite pictures of flowers blooming around my house last year. The scenery outside seems to be quite unchanging right now and I need some color in my life. It looks like we added another couple of inches of snow again last night.
