The Irish have a blessing that begins, “May the road rise to meet you/May the wind be always at your back/May the sun shine warm upon your face.”

Read This.



Now Try This:

Write a poem full of good wishes for a loved one.  Start every line of the poem with the phrase “May…”  As you are brainstorming ideas for your blessings, think about words related to nature, home, the seven continents, music, food, animals, and more. You might write lines such as “May you protect your dreams with the fierceness of a tiger” or “May you always awake with a cup of coffee in your hands.”

Once you write your own poem, you can share your poem on Instagram #WhereWordsFly @WITSHouston. Happy writing!
