Poetry Friday, better late than never

Life is mostly froth and bubble,
Two things stand like stone;
Kindness in another's trouble,
Courage in your own.

by A.L. Gordon
in THIS PLACE I KNOW: POEMS OF COMFORT, selected by Georgia Heard

From School Library Journal
In memory of the September 11th tragedy, this book was compiled initially to offer hope and comfort to children who witnessed the event firsthand, but has far broader application, speaking to all people, young and old, who suffer trauma.
