the many-colored land

living in a cave so long
cold and damp i shivered.
sunshine?--not for me!

why was that?
we can get used to most any thing--
but should we?
how then to wake up?

the best way, i think
is to do a good deed,
to lift up a fellow wanderer.
o! then the sun shines!
warm light floods the soul!

and if we are lucky
(and i was!)
entrance may be gained
to the many-colored land.
