The Poor Man


It is on treasures to say
That you are rich
It’s not on gold or on silver
To prove that you are wealthy man
And not on awards you get
In the competition of pride
Your money cannot whisper
To your ears that you
Are great and you can
Do whatever you want
You can boast about the
Things that were laid
In your hands, But now I say
A desire of earthly things
Is only a wastage
Look and see your own
Reflection on the mirror
And talk about your own self
Yes, you are rich but what
If your heart and mind were poor?
Better is the poor man
Whose heart and mind were nurtured
Rich with good thoughts and actions
Because he can walk in the straight way
Of the true treasures in life.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
