By Roland E. Williams


The beggar who is a king

The stranger who is a friend

The hurt which is a joy

The sorrow which is happiness

The joy that is a heartache

The happiness shed with tears

The friend who is estranged

The king who is a pauper

The man who is a child

The egoist who is an altruist

The flame that is all frozen

The reason that is despair

The mountain that is a heap

The eyes which see no more

The mind which is mindless

The hunger that can’t be fed

The opening that is shut

‘T is love that does all this
