End Poem . . .
Poet: John McLeod, 1989

And some they tilt at windmills
And some they push the plough
The Poet does both on wind-filled wings
Above the "Wonder-How"!
And some may never see beyond
The bow-wave sparkling bright
To where the questing Soul will find
That broader, wiser sight.

Methinks this sometimes Poet and Clown
Love's blessing rich endow,
To brush the stars as, through the glass
Sees much less darkly now!

Poet: Wilhelmina Stitch

A little word to play so big a part!
It oft controls the hand and mind;
it is the guardian of the heart.
No stronger word we'll ever find
Because of others, laziness will work;
and selfishness retire in shame;
and sadness sing, despite the gloom and muck;
and high ambition turn away from fame.

We are determined on a certain course
and then, because of others, curb our will.
Oh! little word, you have tremendous force
to turn to goodness what we planned for ill.
We must be brave that others will not fear;
and when the face of trouble doth appear -
because of others, not a bit of fuss!

The sweetest, tenderest thoughts, others inspire;
the noblest actions are for others done;
for others, burns the brightest of love's fire;
for others are the hardest battles won.

"The distinction between historian and poet is not in the one writing prose and the other verse . . .the one describes the thing that has been, and the other a kind of thing that might be. Hence poetry is something more philosophic and of graver import than history, since its statements are of the nature rather of universals, whereas those of history are singulars." Aristotle
