Sailing in the light. 阳光下嬉水的天鹅就是白色。

Leaves compared with flowers
By Robert Frost
A tree’s leaves may be ever so good.
So may its bark, so may its wood;
But unless you put the right thing to its root.
It never will show much flower or fruit.
But I may be one who does not care
Ever to have tree bloom or bear.
Leaves and bark may be tree enough.
Some giant trees have bloom so small.
They might as well have none at all.
Late in life I have come on fern.
Now lichens are due to have their turn.
I bade men tell me which in brief,
Which is fairer, flower or leaf.
They did not have the wit to say,
Leaves by night and flowers by day.
Leaves and bark, leaves and bark,
To lean against and hear in the bark.
Petals I may have once pursued.
Leaves are all my darket mood.
By Allan Houston
Life can be good,
Life can be bad,
Life is mostly cheerful,
But sometimes sad.
Life can be dreams,
Life can be great thoughts;
Life can mean a person,
Sitting in court.
Life can be dirty,
Life can even be painful;
But life is what you make it,
So try to make it beautiful.
If one day you feel like crying...
I don't promise that I will make you laugh,
But I can cry with you.
If one day you want to run away -
Don't be afraid to call me.
I don't promise to ask you to stop...
But I can run with you.
If one day you don't want to listen to anyone...
I promise to be there for you,
And I promise to be very quiet.
But if one day you call...
And there is no answer...
Come fast to see me,
Perhaps I need you.
