Ever Now And Then

Updated on May 6, 2012

Ever now and then

When you're feeling blue

Don't forget now and then

Even winners lose

Fate steps in to have its way

The dreams you had just fade away

~

Ever now and then

Love affairs go wrong

And as time goes by

Heartaches come along

So brace your chin

To lose or win

Ever now and then

~

Even now and then

When the light burns low

And a ship gets lost

In the ebb and flow

Keep your eyes on the gentle shore

Till the dangers past and is no more

~

Ever now and then

You may lose your way

But the road ahead

Will be a brighter day

Sway and bend

To the wayward wind

Ever now and then

      This is so elegantly said - the gentle cadence of poetry and the inspiring thought within are so refreshing.

      But the road ahead

      Will be a brighter day

      Sway and bend

      To the wayward wind

      Ever now and then

      thank you for brightening my day.

      Your iambic pentameter is just on point in every way, I love your style of poetic sway, its so rhythmic and flows naturally. Great job!

      Ann, What a gently philosophical, lively, lyrical poetic tribute to the ebbs and flows, valleys and mountains in life! In particular, I like the connection between the opening photograph and your third stanza. This reads as much a song as a poem!

      Respectfully, and with many thanks for sharing, Derdriu

      Oh yeah, the rain does come, and the waves with it. We just have to chill out, and head into the wind.

      You wanna fight?! I would never try to out-do a poet like you Michael. I have found it most rewarding to work with other poets. I have had many partners. It's so stimulating to have ideas popping back and forth. And sharing the thoughts is a special bond. See were I shared this authorship with c w brewer. He wrote, These boots are made for walking. However, he was sort of difficult at times. This was recorded in Nashville. I wish I knew how to make an mp3. I'd share it with you.

      ann....Yes, life goes on....we're up, we're down and in reality, never know what awaits us around every corner. To be ready and willing to come face to face with all life presents to us, is the only way we can ride the waves smoothly. Great poem.

      This keeps life in perspective, you have to expect a little rain once in awhile. We all grow a little stronger from the experience.
