The sea is calm to-night.
The tide is full, the moon lies fair
Upon the straits; - on the French coast the light
Gleams and is gone; the cliffs of England stand,
Glimmering and vast, out in the tranquil bay.
Come to the window, sweet is the night-air!
Only, from the long line of spray
Where the sea meets the moon-blanch'd land,
Listen! you hear the grating roar
Of pebbles which the waves draw back, and fling,
At their return, up the high strand,
Begin, and cease, and then again begin,
With tremulous cadence slow, and bring
The eternal note of sadness in.

Sophocles long ago
Heard it on the {AE}gean, and it brought
Into his mind the turbid ebb and flow
Of human misery; we
Find also in the sound a thought,
Hearing it by this distant northern sea.

The Sea of Faith
Was once, too, at the full, and round earth's shore
Lay like the folds of a bright girdle furl'd.
But now I only hear
Its melancholy, long, withdrawing roar,
Retreating, to the breath
Of the night-wind, down the vast edges drear
And naked shingles of the world.

Ah, love, let us be true
To one another! for the world, which seems
To lie before us like a land of dreams,
So various, so beautiful, so new,
Hath really neither joy, nor love, nor light,
Nor certitude, nor peace, nor help for pain;
And we are here as on a darkling plain
Swept with confused alarms of struggle and flight,
Where ignorant armies clash by night.

The Cycle Of Life - Poem by Robert Edgar Burns

 

When articulating of semantics,
Speak of the Law Of Thermodynamics.
Creation past has been completed.
It is finished should be repeated.

Neither matter nor energy can,
Be created or destroyed by man.
Every ordered system with advent of time
Will become depleted even the sun’s shine.

The wind flows toward the south
And returns north as it comes about!
Air currents circle around the earth,
In a rotating cycle that is rehearsed.

All rivers run right into the sea
But the ocean’s aren’t full in this circuitry.
They give it up to the clouds as rain,
Completing the water cycle once again.

If a man’s body has returned to dust,
It is his offspring that he leaves to us.
Another generation can then be found,
It’s the cycle of life spinning all around.

In the cycle of living
Do the best that you can.
Be a friend to all others,
Leave as a much better man!

A prayer in Spring By Robert Frost

 

Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers to-day;
And give us not to think so far away
As the uncertain harvest; keep us here
All simply in the springing of the year.

Oh, give us pleasure in the orchard white,
Like nothing else by day, like ghosts by night;
And make us happy in the happy bees,
The swarm dilating round the perfect trees.

And make us happy in the darting bird
That suddenly above the bees is heard,
The meteor that thrusts in with needle bill,
And off a blossom in mid air stands still.

For this is love and nothing else is love,
The which it is reserved for God above
To sanctify to what far ends He will,
But which it only needs that we fulfil.
