I'm quite surprised that there isn't any thread about poetry, but I guess I'll be the one that will start one. If you like poetry and have a favorite poem, post it here and say why you like it. I know a lot of you know that I am wont to say that I say I'll do or will try to do many things which don't bring any visible fruit. The reason for this is that there is an excerpt of a poem that I keep dear to my heart that acts as my drive and I know it by heart. Here it is:
"I would be true, for there are those who trust me;
I would be pure, for there are those who care;
I would be strong, for there is much to suffer;
I would be brave, for there is much to dare."
Howard Arnold Walter
I never forgot that and I never will.
