The Blood


With that great pierce
Blood gushed with great velocity
And fell on the dirtiest land in the city
And it cleansed the worst of men
It healed innumerable illnesses
Men looked at it with great disdain
But it speaks for them again and again
Looking very fresh and new
It speaks better things than the blood of Abel
Though men think he is a rebel
And some termed him the son of Beelzebub
But his blood saved the world
and it fulfilled his word

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.
