What Need?

Klimt Tree of Life

We are asked to take a line from a Walt Whitman poem and make it our own.


To me every hour of the light and dark is a miracle;
To be alive at all is too good to be true!
What need is there for angels or other remarkables?
Take a look at life and simply drink-in the view.


Nothing is ever easy; life is like a maze.
There are so many twists and turns, so many different ways.
You start out going somewhere and then you change  your mind;
Or else you suddenly realise you've left your purse behind.
The bus breaks down, the train is late, you fall and hurt your knee;
You wander in the garden and you get stung by a bee.
You buy a special outfit, very up-to-the-minute,
And then you find that Alice Spink is looking pretty in it.
Even in your cosy home Life catches you unawares;
You go to write a shopping list....ah, your glasses are upstairs!
'Life wasn't meant to be easy' some famous person said.
That's proved on a daily basis, so get it into your head.
