I am looking for the poem that includes the following:
"And beautiful is love and to be
Free is beautiful and beautiful are friends
Love, Freedom, Comrades surely make amends
For all these thorns through which we walk to death"
I recalled it being in John Masefield's The Everlasting Mercy but did not find it.
I hope someone can help!
The poem I am looking for was one that I remember as a child. My aunt had it hanging in her kitchen for as long as I can remember. I believe that the name was" Why Worry?"
If you can shed any light on this, I would greatly appreciate it.
I don't know it as a poem, so it is probably not the one, or is it ?
There are only two things to worry about.
Either you are well or you are sick.
If you are well there is nothing to worry about.
If you are sick there are two things to worry about.
Either you get well or you die,
If you get well there is nothing to worry about.
But if you die there are two things to worry about.
Either you go to Heaven or you go to Hell.
If you go to Heaven there is nothing to worry about.
But if you go to Hell you’ll be so busy shaking hands
With all your friends you won’t have time to worry.
or this one
Through all of my trials
Through all of my journeys
Through all of my mistakes
Through all of my victories
I realize one thing
What will be - will be
What we do - we’ll do
What others do - they’ll do
So just live and learn
Just live and enjoy
Just live and appreciate life
Appreciate what you have while you have it
Don’t waste time having sleepless nights
About something not in your control
Don’t waste valuable time being in a hurry
If God is with you
