I like the simplicity and the depth in this short poem. It is uplifting in its sentiment, that whatever has gone before, there is ahead of us a future. Somehow all possibilities are contained in two short verses. Very clever. Very pertinent to the times, and the best poem for a Wednesday. I love how poems can change days. Wunderschon, danke zu Brecht fur ‘Alles wandelt sich’. The poem is called ‘ Everything Changes – after Brccht, Alles wandelt sich’ and was written by Cicily Herbert. She is better known for being one of the three people behind introducing poetry to the Underground, and going on to edit the anthology ‘Poems on the Underground’, and putting a little enjoyment into thousands of peoples lives on a daily basis. Simple idea, simply brilliant.
