Thank you, Dear Friends, for expressing your thoughts today on the importance of the arts in your lives.
Many years ago, a number of threads were devoted to poetry, literature, even English grammar. Rather than resurrect an old thread -- usually with zero results -- I would like to introduce a new post, asking you to add some of your favorite verse.
The old threads often were numerous pages long.
NOT IN VAIN
If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain:
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not life in vain.
