My Philosphy

My Philosphy

A Poem by hyancynthstofeedthysoul

I wrote this as a review for one of my sons poems.


Some think twoud it great to be king,
To which I say it's no such thing.
Having been there,
It's far more rare,
To sit  poor and contently sing.

Excellent poem. The quiet, unassuming nature of your words speak of the quiet virtues learned in the more common areas of life.

This poem is short, sweet, and to the point. A great philosphy; please make time to read mine, some day. I haven't seen this writing style, in quite a while; I forget what it is called, at the moment. However, you do the writing style justice and you, quickly, say a lot with few words, like the ancient runic writings. Nicely and expertly done!!

"Some might think, 'twould be great to be king;"...
If only humanity could learn to be content with what they have, and dream less of acquiring more and yet more stuff...
This is a beautiful philosophy, and so succinctly said it seems more a lyric than a limerick!

What a great philosophy! This could be the lyrics of a short song, few rifs here and there and you're away ..

Here, here. I'm poor, but I don't "sing" that often... It is rare.

Thank god for short poems, they do the heart and mind wonders. So many think that to express something important, the poem must be long, but this disproves that statement. Great poem, I enjoyed it greatly and read it more than once. Thanks for sharing!

Truer words will never be written.
Thanks for keeping me in touch with what I need to be.
