   Inspirational Poetry

There are so many wonderful poems to choose from it is difficult to know where to make a start! We have therefore devised a Top 20 List of our favourite poems. It was an extremely difficult task and obviously our choice, in the end, was based on personal preferences! We hope that the list will provide our readers with as much pleasure that these famous verses have given to us. A good knowledge of these famous verses will provide all students and children with a good grounding of the subject. Each poet has a different style of writing making expert use of the English language. We have been asked on many occasions which is our favourite poem. Impossible! Writing styles, subject matter and even childhood memories influence choices, so we gave up and endeavoured to, at least, compile a list of our top twenty famous and favourite poems! The first line of the famous verse has been included to jog the memory! Please refer to the Index for the Top 20 list! We can, however give examples of some motivational verses from a selection of the most popular inspiring poems:


From the inspired poem ' If ' - by Rudyard Kipling

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too:
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream and not make dreams your master;
If you can think and not make thoughts your aim,
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same:
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build'em up with worn-out tools

God Save the Flag a poem by Oliver Wendell Holmes

God Save the Flag
Washed in the blood of the brave and the blooming, 
Snatched from the altars of insolent foes, 
Burning with star-fires, but never consuming, 
Flash its broad ribbons of lily and rose.

Vainly the prophets of Baal would rend it, 
Vainly his worshippers pray for its fall; 
Thousands have died for it, millions defend it, 
Emblem of justice and mercy to all;

Justice that reddens the sky with her terrors, 
Mercy that comes with her white-handed train, 
Soothing all passions, redeeming all errors, 
Sheathing the sabre and breaking the chain.

Borne on the deluge of all usurpations, 
Drifted our Ark o'er the desolate seas, 
Bearing the rainbow of hope to the nations, 
Torn from the storm-cloud and flung to the breeze!

God bless the Flag and its loyal defenders, 
While its broad folds o'er the battle-field wave, 
Till the dim star-wreath rekindle its splendors, 
Washed from its stains in the blood of the brave!
