“As You Go Through Life” NEW!

Description from Beady Little Eyes: The first verse of the poem - "As You Go Through Life" by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Don't look for the flaws as you go through life;
And even when you find them,
It is wise and kind to be somewhat blind
And look for the virtue behind them.
For the cloudiest night has a hint of light
Somewhere in its shadows hiding;
It is better by far to hunt for a star,
Than the spots on the sun abiding.

    I love that poem! After all, Mother Nature doesn’t create everything perfectly, but we still see and marvel over the imperfections for their beauty. I love your pick to go with the poem.

    This is a well-thought put together pick Beady – I love the set up, going from the ground to above ground, to flight and eventually the sky/heavens. an excellent match for the wonderful poem – thank you so much for sharing.

    Thank you for sharing the lovely poem.
    Your pick is a poem in itself…a visual poem that tells a story without saying a word. Well done!

    Such a beautifully appropriate pick for that commemorative day. Thank you, Beady. And after the floods, wild fires, disease and drought of this summer, there is still beauty and virtue to be found. <3
