Open the Door

“The Door”

 

Go and open the door.

Maybe outside there’s

a tree, or a wood,

a garden,

or a magic city.

 

Go and open the door.

Maybe a dog’s rummaging.

Maybe you’ll see a face,

or an eye,

or the picture

of a picture.

 

Go and open the door.

if there’s a fog

it will clear.

 

Go and open the door.

Even if there’s only

the darkness ticking,

even if there’s only

the hollow wind,

even if

nothing

is there,

go and open the door.

At least

there will be

a draught.

– Miroslav Holub

 

I’m sure many of you have heard the poem by Robert Frost “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening." The last stanza encourages us to get up and move on. 

 

...The woods are lovely, dark and deep,

But I have promises to keep,

And miles to go before I sleep,

And miles to go before I sleep.

 

Blessed 2021!
