People From Heaven
'Where did I come from? ' the child asked,
'Heaven, ' was the mother's answer;
'Did Father and you come from heaven, too? '
'Yes, my little one, we all came from there.'
'Is life in heaven, Mother, a good life? '
'Angellic life: no sickness, thirst, hunger,
without grief and toil, without nighjt and day,
and you can have all your heart's desire.'
