POEM OF THE DAY: Life’s Treasurings

by Dame Mary Gilmore  (1865 – 1962).

 

Life’s Treasurings (1918)

 

These are life’s treasurings:

The sudden sun through rain;

Stars on a frosty night;

Grass rippling o’er the plain;

Tempest grown still;                                    5

Hearth-fires when long roads end;

Candle-light in a quiet room;

And the still silence of a friend.
