I Am a Porter


I am a Porter
I am a bread delivery man
I am a milkman
I am a dustbin man
I am a postman
A shoulder to cry on
I am an X- Ray man
I am an undertaker man
I am a delivery man
I am a snow clearing man
I am a car park man
An understanding man
I am a meal trolley man
I am a pathology man
I am a laundry man
I am a security man
I am a sometimes gardening man
I am a night watchman
An always ready to help you man
I am a patient trolley pushing man
I am a removal man
I am a gas cylinder man
I am a provisions delivery man
A funny man
A sad man
A thoughtful man
A wise man
I am a Porter.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
