Oh Child Who Cries


Child in the steps
Missing
You came
Trying
To get
Answers
From womb
From one
To an other
Tasting sand
Drinking light
Within smells
Of air
Don’t cry
Oh child don’t relay
Get the answers
From deep
Of your heart
Beyond the mist
Beyond the dark

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.
