Homeless


Twice this writer
has asked God about
whether or not to
give a homeless person
a room in my dwelling.

The first time I opened
in the many hundred paged
Ramayana to
'You have not yet learnt
the mantras by which to
expel demons.'
Of the second person
the answer in the Bible
was 'I was a stranger
and you took me in.'

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
