The greatest accomplishments in life

To dream, to dare make true;
To fail, improve and learn from, in times due.
To change, evolve, and become stronger than before;
To recognize and overcome past pains from closed doors.
To share and love someone with talk, touch and time;
To see what is not there, yet feel its glow and shine.
To believe in oneself, in the face of adversity;
To express oneself, let go of fears, and enjoy life’s diversity.

To live within your means, without selling happiness for wealth;
To learn, and lead others to better their health.
To be true to your desires and spirit at all cost;
to follow your own path, and lead those who are lost.
To enjoy Beauty in all her mysterious forms;
To reconnect with items cherished, once lost to the storm.
To pay it forward, and not back;
To deliver light to the soul gone black.

Tips on reading a poem out loud...

Remember to read the poem slowly and clearly as it will much easier for your audience to hear it.

Read in a normal, relaxed tone of voice as poems selected are mostly written in a natural, colloquial style and should be read that way.

Try not to pause at the end of the line as it will make a choppy effect and wont flow as well. Only pause at punctuation.

look up unfamiliar words in a dictionary so you know how to pronounce them properly.

     A Fairy Song
Over hill, over dale,
Thorough bush, thorough brier,
Over park, over pale,
Thorough flood, thorough fire!
I do wander everywhere,
Swifter than the moon's sphere;
And I serve the Fairy Queen,
To dew her orbs upon the green;
The cowslips tall her pensioners be;
In their gold coats spots you see;
Those be rubies, fairy favours;
In those freckles live their savours;
I must go seek some dewdrops here,
And hang a pearl in every cowslip's ear

By William Shakespeare
