The Stranger (poem)

Updated on May 8, 2016

A morning like all others but for this

An odd familiar stranger walked through town

Awakened interest no soul cared to frown

He knows something we dare not want to miss


Soon neighbors starting talking as they should

Once small town strangers, learned to make new friends

Discovering they walked toward common ends

An adventure with good friends this feels quite good


Eventually the party swept all in

The stranger led them up a coastal hill

Here now familiar town began to mill

We know this stranger with his saintly grin


Then from the evening sky a blazing star

It struck and all they left was torn away

With no one hurt clear miracle in play

This day could not get any more bizarre


A song of hope the friends now undertook

They all lost something less than they had gained

The one that saved them now attentions trained

He’s gone and all he left us was this book

Music only
