Today is National Poem In Your Pocket Day! Swipe to see the poem I'll be folding up to carry in my pocket today. I had a lovely time this morning perusing my poetry collection and deciding which one to use as my little tornadoes tore around the room dancing to The Muppets. 😂 ✨ ✨ ✨ #bookstamumsapril19 today is "adventure you'd be in and #storieswithstephapr19 is "crown on the cover," so The False Prince was a no-brainer! I love the characters so much, I'd definitely head out adventuring with them. ✨ ✨ ✨ Anybody have fun plans for the weekend? The schools are all off tomorrow, so we're having an Easter egg hunt at church in the morning and then hopefully getting out to enjoy the nice spring weather they're promising us! ✨ ✨ ✨ #thefalseprince #jenniferanielsen #theascendancetrilogy #poeminyourpocketday #ellawheelerwilcox #amorningprayer #nationalpoetrymonth #mgfiction #beautifulbooks #bookart #bookcrown #bookphoto #favoritebooks #bookish

“There’s one sad truth in life I’ve found While journeying east and west.The only folks we really wound are those we love the best.We flatter those we scarcely know,We please the fleeting guest,And deal full many a thoughtless blow To those who love us best.” #ellawheelerwilcox @_satyam_official @vikas.jaiswal20 @ashu_b4u #2019  #mumbaidiaries #adventuretime  #explore  #fun  #photography  #life  #inspired #instagram  #instadaily  #friends #ride  #indian #instagood  #beach  #island  #beautiful #wanderlust  #influencer  #nike  #instastyle #smile  #beer #tbt #me #instamood at RReloaded Bar and Kitchen

Flowers are energy and energy is love. Have a look around you and see what there is growing and transforming. That's all I did. And now I am full of wonder. And Ella wheeler Wilcox is helping me out again. That women keeps on giving. To me at least. So glad she existed in earth. "Though critics may bow to art, and I am its own true lover,  It is not art, but heart, which wins the wide world over. Though smooth be the heartless prayer, no ear in Heaven will mind it,  And the finest phrase falls dead, if there is no feeling behind it. Though perfect the player's touch, little if any he sways us,  Unless we feel his heart throb through the music he plays us. Though the poet may spend his life in skilfully rounding a measure,  Unless he writes from a full warm heart, he gives us little pleasure. So it is not the speech which tells, but the impulse which goes with the saying,  And it is not the words of the prayer, but the yearning back of the praying. It is not the artist's skill, which into our soul comes stealing  With a joy that is almost pain, but it is the player's feeling. And it is not the poet's song, though sweeter than sweet bells chiming,  Which thrills us through and through, but the heart which beats under the rhyming. And therefore I say again, though I am art's own true lover,  That it is not art, but heart, which wins the wide world over." Ella wheeler Wilcox.

Can you identify the actor behind the mask? . . . On asked about the toughest character that he has ever played in life, an actor (a famous one) once said, 'the face that I carry daily, is the biggest and the toughest acting ever done by me'... . . There is an actor inside all of us. We run through a lot of things inside the 1200 cubic cm thing resting above our shoulders. Yet we manage to carry a smile. . . Let's raise a toast for all the art inside us. All of us deserve and Oscar. 🍾🍻 . . . . . #updivine #updivineyourvibes #ellawheelerwilcox #poetry #poem #poems #poetrycommunity #writersofinstagram #poetsofinstagram #love #poemsofinstagram #poet #poema #poetsofig #writersofig #poemas #wordporn #quotes #poets #poesia #writer #poemoftheday #instapoem #instapoetry #spilledink #poetryisnotdead #instapoet #poemsporn #poemcommunity #poemofinstagram

- It is easy enough to be pleasant, When life flows by like a song, But the man worth while is one who will smile, When everything goes dead wrong. For the test of the heart is trouble, And it always comes with the years, And the smile that is worth the praises of earth Is the smile that shines through tears. - Excerpt of the poem „Worth While“ by Ella Wheeler Wilcox - #theschoolofdeath #death #life #resilience #passion #power #human #suffering #emotions #feelings #courage #trouble #soulpower #wisdom #maturity #tears #strength #poetry #poems #ellawheelerwilcox - 📷: Filmstill of „La passion de Jeanne d'Arc" by Carl Theodor Dreyer (1928) showing Maria Falconetti [Renée Jeanne Falconetti] at The School of Death

To sin by silence, when we should protest, Makes cowards out of men. The human race Has climbed on protest. Had no voice been raised Against injustice, ignorance, and lust, The inquisition yet would serve the law, And guillotines decide our least disputes. The few who dare, must speak and speak again To right the wrongs of many. Speech, thank God, No vested power in this great day and land Can gag or throttle. Press and voice may cry Loud disapproval of existing ills; May criticise oppression and condemn The lawlessness of wealth-protecting laws That let the children and childbearers toil To purchase ease for idle millionaires. Therefore I do protest against the boast Of independence in this mighty land. Call no chain strong, which holds one rusted link. Call no land free, that holds one fettered slave. Until the manacled slim wrists of babes Are loosed to toss in childish sport and glee, Until the mother bears no burden, save The precious one beneath her heart, until God’s soil is rescued from the clutch of greed And given back to labor, let no man Call this the land of freedom.

@ellawheelerwilcox “The beautiful and slender young New Moon, In trailing robes of pink and palest blue, Swept close to Venus, and breathed low: 'A boon, A precious boon, I ask, dear friend, of you.' 'O queen of light and beauty, you have known The pangs of love - its passions and alarms; Then grant me this one favour, let my own - My lost Old Moon be once more in my arms.' Swift thro' the vapours and the golden mist - The Full Moon's shadowy shape shone on the night, The New Moon reached out clasping arms and kissed Her phantom lover in the whole world's sight.” - Ella Wheeler Wilcox #ellawheelerwilcox #poetry #newmoon #moon #fullmoon #spirit #venus

"Laugh, and the world laughs with you; Weep, and you weep alone; For the sad old earth must borrow its mirth, But has trouble enough of its own. Sing, and the hills will answer; Sigh, it is lost on the air; The echoes bound to a joyful sound, But shrink from voicing care. . Rejoice, and men will seek you; Grieve, and they turn and go; They want full measure of all your pleasure, But they do not need your woe. Be glad, and your friends are many; Be sad, and you lose them all,— There are none to decline your nectared wine, But alone you must drink life’s gall. . Feast, and your halls are crowded; Fast, and the world goes by. Succeed and give, and it helps you live, But no man can help you die. There is room in the halls of pleasure For a large and lordly train, But one by one we must all file on Through the narrow aisles of pain. . 'Solitude' by Ella Wheeler Wilcox .

‘You got this.’ “No difficulty can discourage, no obstacle dismay, no trouble dishearten the man who has acquired the art of being alive. Difficulties are but dares of fate, obstacles but hurdles to try his skill, troubles but bitter tonics to give him strength; and he rises higher and looms greater after each encounter with adversity.” #ellawheelerwilcox #kk #spartanrace #spartan #tbt #march #omc #green #gr🍀🍀n

- A Grey Mood As we hurry away to the end, my friend, Of this sad little farce called existence, We are sure that the future will bring one thing, And that is the grave in the distance. And so when our lives run along all wrong, And nothing seems real or certain, We can comfort ourselves with the thought (or not) Of that spectre behind the curtain. But we haven't much time to repine or whine, Or to wound or jostle each other; And the hour for us each is to-day, I say, If we mean to assist a brother. And there is no pleasure that earth gives birth, But the worry it brings is double; And all that repays for the strife of life, Is helping some soul in trouble. I tell you, if I could go back the track To my life's morning hour, I would not set forth seeking name or fame, Or that poor bauble called power. I would be like the sunlight, and live to give; I would lend, but I would not borrow; Nor would I be blind and complain of pain, Forgetting the meaning of sorrow. This world is a vaporous jest at best, Tossed off by the gods in laughter; And a cruel attempt at wit were it, If nothing better came after. It is reeking with hearts that ache and break, Which we ought to comfort and strengthen, As we hurry away to the end, my friend, And the shadows behind us lengthen. - Grey Mood by Ella Wheeler Wilcox, 1910 - #theschoolofdeath #death #life #mortality #meaningoflife #heartbreak #suffering #mood #beinghuman #selflessness #compassion #melancholy #existence #future #world #afterlife #poetry #poems #ellawheelerwilcox - Art: The Repentant St. Mary Magdalen by Domenico Fetti, between 1617 and 1621 at The School of Death

One who claims that he knows about it  Tells me the earth is a vale of sin;  But I and the bees, and the birds we doubt it,  And think it a world worth living in. ------ Whatever you want, if you wish for it long,  With constant yearning and ceaseless desire,  If your wish soars upward on wings so strong That they never grow languid, never tire,  Why, over the storm cloud and out of the dark  It will come flying some day to you,  As the dove with the olive branch flew to the ark, And the wish you've been dreaming,  it will come true. - Ella Wheeler Wilcox #poetry #poem #worldworthlivingin #ellawheelerwilcox #lifequotes #dreams #inspiration #wishes #lifelessons #hope

What can be said in New Year rhymes, That’s not been said a thousand times? The new years come, the old years go, We know we dream, we dream we know. We rise up laughing with the light, We lie down weeping with the night. We hug the world until it stings, We curse it then and sigh for wings. We live, we love, we woo, we wed, We wreathe our brides, we sheet our dead. We laugh, we weep, we hope, we fear, And that’s the burden of the year. #ellawheelerwilcox #ceramic #ceramics #pottery #design #decorative #cobaltblue #traditional #turquoise #glassur #glazing #glaze #art #artworks #artist #ceramiclicious # #سفال #سرامیک #دستساز #دیزاین #دکوراتیو #رنگی #رنگی #هنرمند #هنردستایرانی

“Solitude” By Ella Wilcox I read this poem earlier today and I just had to find a way to share it. It’s the second poem I’ve read from this poet (who has now become my favorite poet lol) Just so raw and deep. She was inspired to write this poem after meeting a woman who was grieving deeply, alone, and afterwards feeling sadness and grief herself after the encounter with the woman and just feeling her pain. Hope you all enjoy it and learn as much from it as I did! #poem #poetry #solitude #ellawilcox #ellawheelerwilcox

My favorite poet Ella Wheeler Wilcox. (1850-1919) According to what I read, she was heading to a festive and she saw a woman in a black dress crying alone. She sat next to her and sought to comfort the widow's sorrow. After that, Ella herself felt depressed and wrote the first lines of that poem. "Laugh and the world laughs with you; Weep, and you weep alone. For the sad old earth must borrow its mirth But has trouble enough of its own" Her poem "Solitude" was sent to The Sun in 1883 and she received 5$ for this poem. I discovered her first in my university years around 2011-2012 with my own research thanks to a task given. The first poem I discovered was "Platonic", I read that in the class 😃 Today, I just had a discussion and her name was mentioned. It sent me back and made me write all these words. #solitude #ellawheelerwilcox #poems #literature #history

... We will be what we could be. Do not say, "It might have been, had not this, or that, or this." No fate can keep us from the chosen way; He only might who is. ⠀⠀ We will do what we could do. Do not dream Chance leaves a hero, all uncrowned to grieve. I hold, all men are greatly what they seem; He does, who could achieve. ⠀⠀ We will climb where we could climb. Tell me not Of adverse storms that kept thee from the height. What eagle ever missed the peak he sought? He always climbs who might. ⠀⠀ I do not like the phrase "It might have been!". It lacks force, and life's best truths perverts: For I believe we have, and reach, and win, Whatever our deserts. ⠀⠀ — Ella Wheeler Wilcox, It Might Have Been. #abodeofpoets #artofpoets #communityofpoetry #featuredpoems #globalpoetcult #heartofpoetsbloom #penupthoughts #poems #poemsociety #poemsofinstagram #poetcommunity #poetry #poetryaccount #poetryclub #poetrycommunityofig #poetrycorner #poetryisnotdead #poetrylovers #poetryofinstagram #poets #poetsandwriters #poetslife #poetsociety #poetsofinstagram #spilledinkpoetry #spilledpoetry #spilledthoughts #unionofpoets #ellawheelerwilcox #itmighthavebeen

My favourite poem by Ella Wheeler Wilcox.. beautifully expressed.. you never know how or where your actions may end up.. it is all energy and will land somewhere. What sort of seed are you sowing? One thing I have learnt is that sometimes you have to trust and move towards your goals one tiny step at a time. It all adds up.. you are sowing a seed! . . Are your actions coming from a place of love? . #ellawheelerwilcox #reikilove #balanceisqi #sowingseeds #positivedeeds #universalabundance #actionshaveenergy #placeoflove #actsofkindness

"Thoughts are things" Poem by #Ellawheelerwilcox #Video: M.Giglio . I hold it true that thoughts are things Endowed with bodies, breath, and wings, And that we send them forth to fill The world with good results - or ill. That which we call our secret thought Speeds to the earth's remotest spot, And leaves its blessings or its woes Like tracks behind it as it goes. It is God's law. Remember it In your still chamber as you sit With thoughts you would not dare have known, And yet made comrades when alone. These thoughts have life; and they will fly And leave their impress by-and-by, Like some marsh breeze, whose poisoned breath Breathes into homes its fevered breath. And after you have quite forgot Or all outgrown some vanished thought, Back to your mind to make its home, A dove or raven, it will come. Then let your secret thoughts be fair; They have a vital part and share In shaping worlds and moulding fate -- God's system is so intricate. . . . . . . . . . ° #poetry #alphahype #killaframez #urbanandstreet #shotzdelight #fatalframes #streetclassics #poetsofinstagram #acreativevisual #trappingtones #stayandwander #heatercentral #visualmobs ° #poetryis #art and #artis not ...

My heart is like a little bird That sits and sings for very gladness. Sorrow is some forgotten word, And so, except in rhyme, is sadness. The world is very fair to me – Such azure skies, such golden weather, I’m like a long caged bird set free, My heart is lighter than a feather. I rise rejoicing in my life; I live with love of God and neighbour; My days flow on unmarred by strife, And sweetened by my pleasant labour. O youth! O spring! O happy days, Ye are so passing sweet, and tender, And while the fleeting season stays, I revel care-free, in its splendour. by #ellawheelerwilcox #Belize #CaribbeanSea #vacation at Glover's Reef

“One ship drives east and another drives west With the selfsame winds that flow. ‘Tis the set of sails and not the gales Which tells the way to go. Like the winds of the sea are the winds of fate, As we voyage along through life; It’s the set of the soul that decides it’s goal, And not the calm or the strife.” - Ella Wilcox 💫 #knowledge #consciousness #enlightenment #spirituality #spiritualgrowth #spiritualjourney #wisdom #joy #mindful #mindfulness #quotes #life #light #universe #mindbodysoul #ellawilcox #poetry #fishingboat #ilovelife #ellawheelerwilcox #direction #fate #voyage #soul #goal #harbor at Newport, Oregon
