When I Heard the Learned Astronomer

Walt Whitman, 1819 – 1892
 When I heard the learn’d astronomer, 

When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me, 

When I was shown the charts and diagrams, to add, divide, 

   and measure them,

When I sitting heard the astronomer where he lectured with

   much applause in the lecture-room,

How soon unaccountable I became tired and sick,

Till rising and gliding out I wander’d off by myself,

In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time, 

Look’d up in perfect silence at the stars.

You Are Old Father William

“You are old, father William,” the young man said, 

“And your hair has become very white; 

And yet you incessantly stand on your head — 

Do you think, at your age, it is right? 
“In my youth,” father William replied to his son, 

“I feared it might injure the brain; 

But, now that I’m perfectly sure I have none, 

Why, I do it again and again.” 
“You are old,” said the youth, “as I mentioned before, 

And you have grown most uncommonly fat; 

Yet you turned a back-somersault in at the door — 

Pray what is the reason for that?” 
“In my youth,” said the sage, as he shook his grey locks, 

“I kept all my limbs very supple 

By the use of this ointment — one shilling a box — 

Allow me to sell you a couple?” 
“You are old,” said the youth, “and your jaws are too weak 

For anything tougher than suet; 

Yet you finished the goose, with the bones and the beak — 

Pray, how did you mange to do it?” 
“In my youth,” said his fater, “I took to the law, 

And argued each case with my wife; 

And the muscular strength, which it gave to my jaw, 

Has lasted the rest of my life.” 
“You are old,” said the youth, “one would hardly suppose 

That your eye was as steady as every; 

Yet you balanced an eel on the tend of your nose — 

What made you so awfully clever?” 
“I have answered three questions, and that is enough,” 

Said his father. “Don’t give yourself airs! 

Do you think I can listen all day to such stuff? 
Be off, or I’ll kick you down stairs.
by Lewis Carroll

The Parable of the Good Samaritan

Each and every Sunday, we share a poem to lighten our soul. Today, we’re going to do it a little with a biblical parable. Comment your thoughts, short story or any poem you will love to see in a future post. Don’t forget to follow us like and share.


The Parable of the Good Samaritan
Behold, a certain lawyer stood up and tested him, saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?”

He said to him, “What is written in the law? How do you read it?”
He answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, with all your mind, [Deuteronomy 6:5]; and your neighbour as yourself [Leviticus 19:18].”
He said to him, “You have answered correctly. Do this, and you will live.”
But he, desiring to justify himself, asked Jesus, “Who is my neighbour?”
— Luke 10:25–29
Jesus replies with a story:
Jesus answered, “A certain man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he fell among robbers, who both stripped him and beat him, and departed, leaving him half dead. By chance a certain priest was going down that way. When he saw him, he passed by on the other side. In the same way a Levite also, when he came to the place, and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a certain Samaritan, as he travelled, came where he was. When he saw him, he was moved with compassion, came to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. He set him on his own animal, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. On the next day, when he departed, he took out two denarii, and gave them to the host, and said to him, ‘Take care of him. Whatever you spend beyond that, I will repay you when I return.’ Now which of these three do you think seemed to be a neighbour to him who fell among the robbers?”
He said, “He who showed mercy on him.”
Then Jesus said to him, “Go and do likewise.”
— Luke 10:30–37
