Positive Attitudes With A Baking Twist

A Sunday Poem

   A Sunday Poem is by James Dillet Freeman.


I have resisted change with all my will,

Cried out to life, “Pass by and leave me still.”

But I have found as I have trudged time’s track

That all my wishing will not hold life back

All finite things must go their finite way;

I cannot bid the merest moment, “Stay.”

So finding that I have no power to change

Change, I have changed myself.  And this is strange,

But I have found out when I let change come,

The very change that I was fleeing from

Has often held the good I had prayed for,

And I was not the less for change, but more.

Once I accepted life and was not loath

To change, I found change was the seed of growth.

  1. Beautiful – can I include that in the 2nd edition of my book: ‘How To Change Your Life One Day At A Time.’ ?

    • Hi Stuart, We are thinking along the same lines. I found the poem in a book of poetry by James Dillet Freeman. If there are no copyright caveats I don’t see why not. Thanks for asking. Continued Success with all your work, Jay

      • If it’s older than 50 years then it’ll be out of copyright – do you know if it is?

      • To be honest I don’t know. Since he was a popular poet I don’t know if another edition of this book has been printed. Perhaps if you look him up on the internet you’ll be able to find a current or past publisher of his works and go from there. Jay
