POEMS: “Life’s voyage” by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

orig_362078

“Life’s voyage”

One ship drives East,

and another drives West;

with the self-same

winds that blow,

‘Tis the set of the sails

and not the gales

that tell them

the way to go.

Like the winds of the sea

are the winds of fate,

as we voyage

along through life,

‘Tis the set of the soul

that decides its goal

and not the calm or the strife.

Ella Wheeler Wilcox
