Yesterday I received an overwhelming e-mail response about what the two lines were from at the end of the post.  Some could remember it vaguely and others were just curious.  So, to answer:  It is Invictus by William Ernest Henley, a Victorian poet.

In roaming the Internet for the poem I came across this little known fact and Morgan Freeman reciting from memory.  This is what I share with you today.

About Henrietta Handy

I have returned home to the mountains. No more am I "a mountain-girl far from home." Diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at 2 1/2, I understand pain, fatigue, laughter, joy, and love all while on crutches and in wheelchairs. This blog is just about me, mostly the writing side, but there are forays into so many different topics. I am married to a wonderful husband who puts up with my writing, knitting, yarn, with the love of a saint. We have fur babies, and one cat who rules us all.

  2. I recall when my Hubby had to recite this poem as one that was chosen by his fraternity. Way back when. We went over it and over it until finally it stuck. Today, just for the fun of it, I asked him if he could still recite, he couldn’t.
