Glass Keys


Long ago when land wasn't scarce
Tigers ruled the world real hard
But now they lie shattered on dark earth
Like glass keys dropped on purpose

The doors they opened no one could see
‘cause they turned their backs, faced extreme greed
And now that all glass keys are long gone
They try wooden ones, but they don’t work at all!

Sad they couldn't see the world
Hidden, which the doors offered.
Only if they looked, just a peek
They would see how much of a difference it would be!

Long ago when land wasn't scarce
Tigers ruled the world real hard
But now they lie shattered on dark earth
Like glass keys dropped on purpose

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
