This Tuesday’s Three Tweet-able Terse Thoughts

[Fifty years ago or so, I was made to memorize my first poem.  Of course, I can’t remember what it was!  To inflict the greatest amount of anxiety, teachers seemed to choose poems that were longer rather than shorter and complex rather than simple..  Here are three poems that are easy to memorize, yet have a lot to say.  Feel free to comment on any and all.  Please vote for your favorite.]

I want to be
so I can be
about being

What good is my
when I am
in this
— David Budbill

Seek Patience

Seek patience
and passion
in equal amounts.

Patience alone
will not build the temple.

Passion alone
will destroy its walls.
— Maya Angelou

God Whose Love and Joy

God, whose love and joy
are present everywhere,
can’t come to visit you
unless you aren’t there.
— Angelus Silesius

(English version by Stephen Mitchell)
