Masks


Masks cover layers unseen
Hide tears behind a screen
Keep out the world so mean
Heart saved from edge so keen

Layers upon layers so deep
Our souls in safety do keep
E'er the watch forsakes sleep
Save us from the pain we reap

One mask, two masks, three
Hide us so not one can see
Except those we make trustee
Even then they cannot see me

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
