I Walked A Mile

Autumn Wallpaper

I really like this simple but powerfully stated poem by Robert Browning Hamilton called “I Walked A Mile.”  It is only two stanzas but has a lot to say: 

“I walked a mile with Pleasure;
She chatted all the way
But left me none the wiser
For all she had to say.

I walked a mile with Sorrow;
And ne’er a word said she
But, oh! The things I learned from her,
When Sorrow walked with me.”

I completely agree with what he said in this poem for I have received many more blessings from Sorrow than ever I did from Pleasure!  Please share your thoughts with me on this poem!

Solitary Sojourn

Walking what seems like

an endless path

of  unspoken words

a heavy burden

tears not cried

holding my heart prisoner

awaiting release

from life’s storm

yet grateful for

the comfort of 

Autumn’s hearth

warming my soul

I Need Help Please!!!

I am having a problem with WP and I do not know how to resolve it.  Every time I try to leave a comment on someone’s website it responds with this message:  “Error: Please fill the required fields.”  I do not know what that means.  I do not understand what the “required fields” are.  If anyone understands what this means please let me know so I can resolve this problem.  I will be very grateful for any help anyone can offer me.  Thank you so much, Deborah

UPDATE:  Sadje and Leah responded saying the solution to this problem is to respond through the Reader and we can leave comments that way.  I just tried it and it works!  Thank you Sadje and Leah!
