Hafsah Ayoub
Joy

Joy, what could be more eperetising than the Joy of life. what is life without joy. Love it can be given and it can never be taken. What is life like without being loved.

There is a million of things that I would rather do than love another. I would count stars day to day admiring each and everyone of them. I am greedy in nature. I do nothing which is temporary. my main reason why I would spend a lifetime counting stars. No matter how many I count each day the end is never near .

Nothing is easy, nothing is certain,
Only the sea, the sun and the sky makes me happy and i think,
That's worthy to fight and for life to win.

Except with you?

Sara Teasdale
The Secret People

Smile at us, pay us, pass us; but do not quite forget.

There is many a free French peasant who is richer and sadder than we.

Lepanto

White founts falling in the courts of the sun,
And the Soldan of Byzantium is smiling as they run;
There is laughter like the fountains in that face of all men feared,
It stirs the forest darkness, the darkness of his beard,

The Family That Prays Together Stays Together

Have you not heard the words of the wise?
Words that made others receive the golden prize
Have your eyes not been opened to see?
Or you are like that barren fig tree?

With pompous wonders to enchant the eye;

Making it rich, and like a lily in bloom,

The Law Of The Jungle

Now this is the Law of the Jungle -- as old and as true as the sky; And the Wolf that shall keep it may prosper, but the Wolf that shall break it must die. AAs the creeper that girdles the tree-trunk the Law runneth forward and back --
For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf, and the strength of the Wolf is the Pack.

Who is weary as I am weary of all but death.

When will you ever, Peace, wild wooddove, shy wings shut,

To own my heart: I yield you do come sometimes; but

Abd-el-kader At Toulon Or, The Caged Hawk

No more, thou lithe and long-winged hawk, of desert-life for thee;
No more across the sultry sands shalt thou go swooping free:
Blunt idle talons, idle beak, with spurning of thy chain,
Shatter against thy cage the wing thou ne'er may'st spread again.

Gleams and is gone; the cliffs of England stand,

Because it dissolves in water. Mark these rounded slopes
With their surface fragrance of thyme and, beneath,

From his lush clover covert;-when anew
