The Fairie Queene by Edmund Spensur
hmmm, hardest question in the world? There are so many great, moving, funny, clever, sad, perfect poems around.
I will always have a soft spot for Mirror Mirror by Spike Milligan though:
A young spring-tender girl
combed her joyous hair
'You are very ugly' said the mirror.
on her lips hung
a smile of dove-secret loveliness,
for only that morning had not
the blind boy said,
'You are beautiful'?
Anyway, by Mother Teresa
People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind people may accuse you of selfish ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough.
Give the world the best you've got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.
