Wisdom Of All


Oh how the mind conceives the thought
With restlessness your heart is wrought
For there is a just and kingly goal
Distant yet touching your crying soul
Be burdened not by task and deed
Lest you be lost to the greater creed
Inspired by self and the knowing within
Shall you pass the haunt, the doom of the din
Listen dear child to thy self sovereign and wise
Heed not to temptation, deception and lies
For it is the tear of joy that you shall weep
When the Promise you vow, you do keep
And when you reach and court the dream
With God's love stand thou supreme
Deception takes not your abiding soul
You have reached a kingly goal
As many may doubt and may berate
You shall prevail for love is thy fate
Guide the children, know their call
With God's tender love and wisdom of all.

Rose Marie Raccioppi


Angel and Child, Relief Sculpture, Ellen Mary Rope, 1855-1934.

For those who may be interested in my work with all learners across the age span, I have provided a link at the close of the posted poem. The second posted link, is to a "Commentary" that you may find of particular interest. Our children deserve all the understanding and support we can provide. Yes, we adults are to be guided as well. As a student of life, each child brought before me is another opportunity to learn, to guide and to be guided. To educate is to bring forward. May a shared vision bring us to the APOGEE of our potential, our understanding and our knowing support of all children.

Thank You for caring,

Rose Marie

  6. Dear Rain, Thank You. Suppression, hurtful judgments, perpetuate pain. This need not be. We are the difference makers, the self liberators. I know you know. You have chosen to be the difference in your life and we are all gifted by the love and beauty you bring to each of us.

  12. Amazing words Rose Marie and I simply had chills reading them! For this poem is truly for all children both young and old to be inspired from within, to be guided innately, to listen to their divine spirit in all things. The way you expressed this is gorgeous!
