Monday Morning Poetry

For this week’s edition of Monday Morning Poetry, I’ve selected two short poems that tugged at my heart this morning. Here they are.

The Morning After Death – Emily Dickinson

The bustle in a house

The morning after death

Is solemnest of industries

Enacted upon earth, —

 

The sweeping up the heart,

And putting love away

We shall not want to use again

Until eternity.

 

Four Things – Henry Van Dyke

Four things a man must learn to do

If he would make his record true:

To think without confusion clearly;

To love his fellow-men sincerely;

To act from honest motives purely;

To trust in God and Heaven securely.
