Quotes From Poems About New Beginnings
The new dawn blooms as we free it,
For there is always light,
If only we’re brave enough to see it,
If only we’re brave enough to be it.
“The Hill We Climb” by Amanda Gorman
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Remember the sun’s birth at dawn, that is the
strongest point of time.
And all the manifold blue and joyous eyes,
The rainbow arching over in the skies,
New sparks of wonder opening in surprise.
“The Mystic Blue” by D. H. Lawrence
…How one thing
becomes another, even the body
as time works through it. My heart
has seemed so heavy, but it lifts
as the wrens hold still like notes on a staff.”
“Year’s End. Year’s Beginning.” by Lynne Knight
Forever – is composed of Nows –
’Tis not a different time –
Except for Infiniteness –
And Latitude of Home –

Do a loony-goony dance
’Cross the kitchen floor,
Put something silly in the world
That ain’t been there before.
