This collage sheet is free for you! A thank you to all the people that have made my first month here rewarding.
All of these images are from my personal collection, but not only do I love collecting photos but I love old poetry books, they are quaint ways of speaking from the heart that you don't hear the same way today.
So for those of you who look at things a bit differently (rust is lovely? old things that show how much they were loved are wonderful?) This is for you...
The Things That Haven't Been Done Before
The things that haven't been done before,
Those are the things to try;
Columbus dreamed of an unknown shore
At the rim of the far-flung sky,
And his heart was bold and his faith was strong
As he ventured in dangers new,
And he paid no heed to the jeering throng
Or the fears of the doubting crew.
The many will follow the beaten track
With guideposts on the way,
They live and have lived for ages back
With a chart for every day.
Someone has told them it's safe to go
On the road he has traveled o'er.
And all that they ever strive to know
Are the things that were known before.
A few strike out, without map or chart,
Where never a man has been,
From the beaten paths they draw apart
To see what no man has seen.
There are deeds they hunger alone to do;
Though battered and bruised and sore,
They blaze the path for the many, who
Do nothing not done before.
The things that haven't been done before
Are the tasks worth while to-day;
Are you one of the flock that follows, or
Are you one that shall lead the way?
Are you one of the timid souls that quail
At the jeers of the doubting crew,
Or dare you, whether you win or fail,
Strike out for a goal that's new?
So, today look at the world with fresh eyes. See things as they aren't, take something mundane and simply everyday and turn it into something that isn't. And if you get a chance take a picture and come back and share it with us.
Have a Happy Day!
