One Poem by Edward Alport

Written in response to this month’s Special Challenge.

The Sight of The Poor

Good King Wenceslas
Found a poor man cowering
By a stack of wood.
“Put it back,” he said.
“I’ll overlook it today
As it’s Boxing Day.”

“But I’ll tell you what:
Have some of my left overs.
I’ll bring them myself,
To show that I’m good,
And you can tell your children
Stories about me.”
