Dolly good fellow!

Peacock Poetry

My lovely Grandma Dolly who lived to the ripe old age of ninety nine was a wise soul. I remember when I was struggling a bit during my twenties that she wrote me a letter in which she included a quote about looking out of the window and appreciating the brand new day (and blank canvas) ahead. I could really relate to this simple and yet profound saying and on re-reading the following poem I can’t help but think that Grandma’s wisdom was creeping in here!

Taking Heart

Taking heart is hard to do

When things don’t go your way

Yet often we owe our growth to

The tough and testing days

The rough and smooth, the win and lose

They give us depth and meaning

Today will be yesterday’s news

Self-pity is demeaning

We must start every day anew

Keep Woe-is-Me at bay

Taking heart is good for you
