The days of reckoning


In the middle of the park
a dog suddenly ceased to bark
and I stood there still to wonder
how it was silenced by thunder
But I did not fear
nor shed a tiny tear
for I already knew what it meant
for, in all my days on this earth spent
I've seen sin and its end -
the strong arms of justice never bend.
It came to me as a fresh warning:
surely the days of reckoning are coming,
So, each man must stand for himself
For none will account for his sayings and sins - but only himself.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
