THE PURSE

I came upon the man who weepeth

And I asked ‘Why weepest thou’

And he answered that of this hour

He had lost his purse and with it the coins

Wherein was all his wealth and all of the things of his life

So my voice crieth out within and

I must needs chide him

For if he thinketh only of the coins

Wherein are all of the things of man’s desires

Then he loseth his Spiritual Purse

For therein are not the coins of this world

For only the things which resideth

In God’s pure world
