the world poem by william brighty rands

But in the evening when he sits to pray, his inner voice tells him that you may be small and a tiny speck on this earth but … you are a living being whom the Lord has made in his image. Topsyturvey-World by William Brighty Rands If the butterfly courted the bee, And the owl the porcupine; If churches were built in the sea, And three times one was nine; If the pony rode his master, If the buttercups ate the cows, If the cat had the dire disaster To be worried, sir, by the mouse; If mamma, sir, sold the baby To a gipsy for half-a-crown; If a gentleman, sir, was a lady- The world would be Upside-Down! Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and … now we lie In Flanders fields. And the wonderful wind is shaking the tree— It walks on the water, and whirls the mills, And talks to itself on the top of the hills. And he should turn to natural things to give himpleasure. If any or all of these wonders Should ever come about, I should not consider them blunders, For I should be Inside-out! Shakespeare is describing his love to all the beautiful things, and yet there no word to describe her. Great, wide, beautiful, wonderful World, With the wonderful water round you curled, And the wonderful grass upon your breast- World, you are beautifully dressed The wonderful air is over me, And the wonderful wind is shaking the tree, It walks on the water, and whirls the mills, And talks to itself on the tops of the hills.

the world poem by william brighty rands

And I thought to myself, How nice it is For me to live in a world like this, Where things can happen, and clocks can strike, And none of the people are made alike; Where Love wants this, and Pain wants that, Where all our hearts want Tit for Tat In the jumbles we make with our heads and our hands, In a world that nobody understands, But with work, and hope, and the right to call Upon Him who sees it and knows us all! Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. He wrote under pseudonyms, among them Matthew Browne, Henry Holbeach, and T.

the world poem by william brighty rands

And the wonderful wind is shaking the tree It walks on the water , and whirls the mills And talks to itself on the tops of hills. In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. The first man to view a distant sunset sitting secure and safe … on the mouth of his mountain cave was the first poet. He didn't know who this poem was by: his mother read it to him growing up. This poem is very close to my heart.

The snow-clad Neanderthaal Valleys in Germania and the bitter-cold Cromagnon Caves in France are full of them. The wonderful air is over me, And the wonderful wind is shaking the tree, It walks on the water, and whirls the mills, And talks to itself on the tops of the hills. The wonderful air is over me.
