Doors


Doors that open
Doors that close
Doors that lead
Where no one goes

Doors with knockers
Made of brass
Doors with windows
Coloured glass

Doors to push
Doors to pull
Doors that spin
So down you fall

Doors with bars
Doors with stops
Doors in cars
All with locks

Doors of oak
Doors of steel
Doors with studs
That you can feel

Doors to lead to other states
Doors created out of hate
Doors which are set
To separate

Doors behind which dogs do bark
Doors from which to make a start
Doors where people leave their hearts
Step apart

Doors imprison
Doors release
Doors preserve
Silent peace

Doors stay stuck
Doors stay open
Doors stay closed
Some get broken

Doors invite
Doors repel
Doors forbid
Hide as well

Doors of secret
Doors of light
Doors with cracks
That creak at night

Doors of Life
Are Doors the same
To find the door
That bears your name

That is the game

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
