The Man Without The Window - Poem by George Price

There's a man without the window
Wrapped in cold and thin.
Why not throw open the doors
And let the stranger in?

Why isolate the weirdo
Who, without his threadbare coat
Is no different from you
In your deep and darkened moat.

So welcome in the stranger
Call him friend again
Let the world come in as equals
And our equality no class maim.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

When I wrote this I was feeling rather isolated and lonely, so this in part deals with that. It also deals with my socialist tendencies.

    People leave and join the site for many reasons, hopefully most receiving multiple comments will eventually receive them, time has many ways for the past to catch up with the present.

    'Wrapped in cold and thin.
    Why not throw open the doors
    And let the stranger in? '

    echoes of many great poets here, passion will stay the course, passion has a way of compelling the passionate back on track.

    Kelly Kurt is so right. George has not posted anything since 15 Oct 2013, so he may never see all these nice comments people are leaving for him. He probably never uses this site anymore.
    It is a great poem, however. Wonderful thoughts about welcoming someone into your own circle.

    Let us drop our false vanity and be friends with the world. Thanks. I quote:
    Why not throw open the doors / And let the stranger in? / So welcome in the stranger / Call him friend again
