There is Hope in the words...
Common words given new life and new meaning to us...
Simple words, sustaining words
words imbued with power deep meaning bread,
water,life,vine,shepherd,and gate,the way beyond the acts........

By Amy Lowell

Amy Lowell (1874-1925)
Amy Lowell , American Imagist poet, was a woman of great accomplishment. She was born in Brookline, Massachusetts, to a prominent family of high-achievers. Her environment was literary and sophisticated, and when she left private school at 17 to care for her elderly parents, she embarked on a program of self-education. Her poetic career began in 1902 when she saw Eleonora Duse, a famous actress, perform on stage. Overcome with Eleonora's beauty and talent, she wrote her first..

Sea Shell
Sea Shell,
Sea Shell,
Sing me a song, O Please!
A song of ships, and sailor men,
And parrots, and tropical trees,
Of islands lost in the Spanish Main
Which no man ever may find again,
Of fishes and corals under the waves,
And seahorses stabled in great green caves.
Sea Shell,
Sea Shell,
Sing of the things you know so well
