Today – The arrow and the song
I love this poem The arrow and the song by Longfellow.
It reminds me that what we do and what we send out into the world with love lives on and grows.We can hurt hearts and scar or we can uplift others long after we have stopped thinking about our actions.
How does this poem resonate with you?
I love to read and talk about poetry yet it seems such a dying art form doesn’t it. but just maybe by sending this out there, it will fall with you and you might write me a little comment back about how it impacted you.
I love to read poems to my children and I still love to make them up. I have actually written a poem story about a little girl and positive thinking which was a joy to write. My kids can both recite the owl and the pussycat one of my most favourite of poems, that I insisted they learn whilst small!
Luckily they love it too.
I am not a tiger mother. Maybe in teaching them and reading to them, my song will resonate.
We must always breathe songs into the air. May yours land always in the heart of a friend
