Desiderata is my favorite poem.The words speak to me and flow beautifully.It is still as relevant today as it was in 1652.When I was a teenager many years ago I had it pinned on my bedroom wall.Today it is pinned on my pinterest site.

This is interesting, as I'd never heard of this poem. So I looked it up. You will probably find this both interesting and surprising: Desiderata on Snopes

Thanks for sharing. :)

Thank you Douglas.It was fascinating to read its true origins and that it was written in the 20th century and not in 1692. I still really like the language and the words.
