See below:. Pleasant Thoughts. Lovely thoughts to live with me; Making my life a rhapsody. The swallow, oft, beneath my thatch Shall twitter from her clay-built nest; Oft shall the pilgrim lift the latch And share my meal, a welcome guest. Around my ivied porch shall spring Each fragrant flower that drinks the dew; And Lucy, at her wheel, shall sing In russet gown and apron blue. Till poverty knocked at her door She never knew how bare The uneventful days of those Who have but want and care. Till sorrow lingered at her hearth, She never knew the night Through which troubled souls might fare To gain the morning light.
Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,
Sometimes I often wonder what I would have been if fate hadn't steered me on the course I am on now. Rich I will never be, nor do I ever want to be. Contentment is my goal and with that I have succeeded. Tragedies and hardships may come my way and I will deal with them whatever the day. After fifty years of writing I have nothing to prove to anyone, only to myself that I can only get better.
Phillipians, iv. In vain by reason and by rule We try to bend the will; For none but in the Saviour's school Can learn the heavenly skill. Since at His feet my soul has sate, His gracious words to hear, Contented with my present state, I cast on Him my care. How light thy troubles here, if weigh'd With everlasting pain! Think what my love for thee endured, And thou wilt not repine. This poem is a good example of why I like Cowper's material.
