If Heaven Has A Throne..

If heaven has a throne for me reserved
This moment I would die and soar willful
You might doubt of my throne how so deserved
My papa said, that I am so worthful
I should be thrown to that throne dutiful
Well nothing is ours to plan and decide
Only the higher Authority's stride

But papa is still repeating the same
Peeping through his vision from his abode
But how? for me it's a hell of a game
For him, his heaven to check and forebode
Yes he's there in skies to block my abode
O' may his wish keep open heaven's gate
May my chaste soul break open this hell's gate

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
