“Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained.” -Chaucer

by haikuhouse

 It feels like forever since I last stepped foot into my local library. Between reading & a baby shower on Sunday, I’d say I’m pretty booked up! 

Last night I began reading a biography about General Douglas MacArthur called ‘American Caesar’. It’s not something I would normally consider but it belonged to my Grandfather & they were both in the Phillipines. So I think that’s going to be the main book to read right now.   

Have a wonderful weekend & here is a short humorous poem out of ‘The Best Loved Poems Of The American People’.

The Optimist

The optimist fell ten stories.

    At each window bar

He shouted to his friends:

    “All right so far.”


Peace & many blessings,
