Right, I need to come up with something for the back of my Eagle Ceremony program, and I'm drawing a blank. I figured I'd sacrifice speed for fewer links to "There Once was a man from Nantucket..."

Oh, and we can discuss them or something. BV

I dunno about inspiring poems, but if I hear that "road less traveled by" shit one more time...

Desiderata? It's not exactly a poem, I suppose.

A man said to the universe, "sir, I exist!"
And the universe replied, "That fact has not instilled in me a sense of obligation."

My knowledge of poetry seems to have a dearth when it comes to inspiring poetry. All I can think of at the moment is "The Charge of the Light Brigade", which is probably more depressing than inspiring. Or perhaps:

We shall not cease from exploration,
And the end of all our exploring,
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
