Under The Stars

A night stay with the homeless clan
They tried of charity
A group of old and young age trooped
Just to feel how 'homeless'are blooped
On earth with poverty

On earth with poverty nightthrough
With blankets and without
With repellants and without they
Ventured barking dogs to dismay
An event to look out

An event to look out concerned
About the street life's pain
An event that made at the end
Each one to vow to help and tend
Atleast one homeless fain

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
