Sometimes -




I received a Holiday card from Jane today with this hope for the new year, and wish for me and the world.  I share it with you and wish the same for you, for myself, and for the world.  


Sometimes

Sheenagh Pugh


Sometimes things don't go, after all,

from bad to worse, muscadel

faces down frost; green thrives; the crops don't fail,

sometimes a man aims high, and all goes well.


A people sometimes will step back from war:

elect an honest man;  decide they care

enough, that they can't leave some stranger poor.

Some men become what they were born for.


Sometimes our best efforts do not go

amiss; sometimes we do as we meant to.

The sun will sometimes melt a field of sorrow

that seemed hard frozen: may it happen to you.
