Poem Inspiration for the Day

Just a little poem to inspire you for the day. As much as I love writing my own poetry, it’s great to read others’ too! There’s so many talented writers with their own unique voices. I surely enjoy reading them.

Here’s “If I Had Known” by Mary Carolyn Davies:

If I had known what troubles you were bearing;

What griefs were in the silence of your face;

I would have been more gentle, and more caring,

And tried to give you gladness for a space.

I would have brought more warmth into the place,

If I had known.

If I had known what thoughts despairing drew you;

(Why do we never try to understand?)

I would have lent a little friendship to you,

And slipped my hand within your hand,

And made your stay more pleasant in the land,

If I had known.
