A Psalm Of Life

Tell me not, in mournful numbers,
Life is but an empty dream!
For the soul is dead that slumbers,
And things are not what they seem.

Very life inspiring energy- recognizing how poetry can connoitre one into a world of contemplating graves and death, but turns to life and being up and functioning, living, not slumbering: energizing, inspiring, pep talk isn.
I love poemhunter. But can we not have the poems play by themselves and go on to play the next one? It's quite annoying.

Wow, this is a great write I enjoy the part the poet talks about working on the present instead of expecting fortunes from tomorrow. Trust no future...... . . Act, act in the Living present
And things are not what they seem! Very true..what we see, what we hear may not be what they really are.
