Love 4 Our Children


To My Mother

Pink Tulips

You too, my mother, read my rhymes
 For love of unforgotten times,
 And you may chance to hear once more
 The little feet along the floor.
                ~Robert Louis Stevenson

If I Could See

bright flowers divider

If I could see as blind men see how clearly I would see.

To meet a man and know him without partiality.

The style of his hair, the color of his skin,

would not prejudice the way my heart would take him in.

Superficialities would neither lose nor win

I’d only see as blind men see the person that’s within.

Author Unknown

Years and years ago I was in Hawaii and read this poem in one of the local newspapers. I have somehow remember it, probably because I like it so much. The Author is Unknown.

Poem by ~ Chief Tecumseh

Chief Tecumseh

Chief Tecumseh

“So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart.

Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours.

Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life.

Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people.

Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide.

Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place.

Show respect to all people and grovel to none.

When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and for the joy of living.

If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself.

Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision.

When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way.

Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.”

~ Chief Tecumseh
