Like the star . . .

~by Goethe

Like the star,
That shines afar,
Without haste
And without rest,
Let each man wheel with steady sway
Round the task that rules the day,
And do his best.

I had forgotten, but I'd blocked all users back when I went underground. But I figured how to un-block, so you're on there now. Sorry about that - it wasn't an intentional snub! Merry Christmas.

Wonderfull post:
Amazing picture, do you know how it was made?

The poem is superb, and it ends with the most important of all: doing our best, that is what counts.

HAve a great time Lydia!

So thoughtful this poem. Merry Christmas my dear friend Lydia to you and your loved ones!

Lydia said...

@secret agent woman- I'll take care of my part then! Thanks for letting me know. Enjoy the rest of your holidays.

@Mariana- It was lovely to have a greeting from you and I send my best wishes in return. I, too, think the poem is superb and so appreciate the picture. I do not know the technique used to create it. If you click on the picture it will take you to the artist's page where you might obtain more info.
Cheers to you as the year ends. :)

@Phivos- Isn't it an ideal poem to end the year and begin a new one?!
Thank you for your good wishes and you certainly have mine for continued joy during the remainder of the holidays.
