Sonnet- Men On Earth


Whoever thinks is great, is not yet so;
Whoever disregards a man, ain't man;
Whoever proud behaves, can't farther go;
Whoever thinks men slaves is not human!

Whoever selfish stays, can't forge ahead;
Whoever evil does, will reap the same;
Whoever stone-hearted turns is but dead;
Whoever makes men sin ends up in shame.

Whoever helps others is helped by God;
Whoever speaks the truth is God's belov'd;
Whoever duty does, gets God's Abode;
Whoever lives for God is like His cloud,

Whoever loves others are called God's men;
Whoever loves the Maker gets Heaven.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
