A Questioning Mind


The mind of another human being,
Looked at me from behind dark brown eyes,
And asked me 'What are you seeing?
And please, do not answer me with lies'.
I said ' I see a starving child,
And I don't know why I still do,
But worst of all this is reality,
For many millions, not just a few.'

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
