At a Locksmith's


Excuse me Sir!
excuse me please,
I've heard about your too much fame
you claim to make amazing keys
in perfect ease.
Now prove your worth
and pray tell me,
if there 's any master key
by which one can unlock the door-
of iron hearts...

    short, straightforward and at the same time offers wealth of meaning...I've read an adage somewhere:
    'kind words unlock the iron door'...but some doors are really rusty. A lovely poem! (Report) Reply

    Who has misplaced or lost the key to unlock the iron chamber of heart? What if it is lost for ever, then a key maker can help without breaking the lock (Report) Reply
