“Hope” is the thing with feathers – (314)
“Hope” is the thing with feathers –
That perches in the soul –
And sings the tune without the words –
And never stops – at all –
And sweetest – in the Gale – is heard –
And sore must be the storm –
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm –
I’ve heard it in the chillest land –
And on the strangest Sea –
Yet – never – in Extremity,
It asked a crumb – of me.

Trees
I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in Summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.

Sunday Poem ~

I miss seeing bloomed daffodils

winter storm Stella froze stretched stems

in New Jersey – grateful for technology;

I find comfort in the poem, Daffodils by William Wordsworth.

Enjoy!

Sunday Poem ~

Life In A Dream

    By Edward Smyth Jones


    There is nothing so sweet as our life in our dreams,
When we soar far on fancy’s swift wing;
For a thing in our dreams is all that it seems,
And the songs are so sweet that we sing.
Ah! the sun shines the brightest, and stars twinkle lightest
At the moon in her silvery beams!

There is nothing so gay as the life in our dreams,
With its joy and its laughter and mirth;
For the pleasure that teems is far greater, one deems,
Than any he finds in the earth.
There are homes are our natal, and nothing is fatal
In the beautiful land of our dreams!

There is nothing so bright as the life in our dreams,
Far away from earth’s trickery chance;
There the music’s wild screams and the wine in its streams
Are both lost in the song and the dance.
Oh! our joy is the sweetest and life is completest,
Ah! the life in our beautiful dreams!

There is nothing serene as the life in our dreams,
When the dove to his mate softly cooes
In the groves by the streams and the moon’s silver beams,
Where the swain oft his maid gently wooes.
There the swains are the rarest and maids are the fairest,
And their love is as true as it seems!

Medicare is on the chopping block ~

Knowledge is power.

The current administration is planning on getting rid of Medicaid, medical services to the poorest Americans – and ‘privatizing’ Medicare.

What does this mean?  Sounds nice, regal – privatized health care for all.

Don’t be fooled.

The customer pays privately for medical services.

So since a majority of the seniors and the disabled live under, near or barley above the poverty line today, then medical services will NOT be accessible for them.

Which means, if you become disabled, or your parent(s) are entering retirement age, or you have a disabled sibling, or your grandmother can’t afford ‘privatized’ Medicare –

they will NOT have access to medical services.

Who needs medical services most?

Exactly.

We all age – so this relate to you too.

Disability does not discriminate – so this relates to you too.

This plan is elitist making Medicare ‘private’ for those who can afford it.

This is a trick – do not be fooled by the magicians behind and in front of the curtain.

Please do not ignore the politics of today.

Educate yourself on what exactly will/plans to be changed regarding health care in general and also specifically with Medicare/Medicaid because no matter what – you will grow older. And Medicare will be your medical care provider.

Call your local, state and Federal representatives. Email them. write them and call, call, call.
