Creative Quotations from . . .
Joseph Seamon Cotter, Jr.
(1895-1919) born on
US poet. He demonstrated enormous promise as a young poet before his death, from tuberculosis, at the age of twenty-four.
Let lessons of stern yesterdays . . . be your food, your drink, your rest.

Train your head and hands to do, your head and heart to dare.
O God, give me words to make my dream-children live.
I am so tired and weary,
So tired of endless fight,
So weary of waiting the dawn
And finding endless night.
The flowers take the tears
of the weeping night
And give them to the sun
for the day's delight.
