Burning Paper

Paper fire

You can burn this piece of paper. But these words can never die
Though you have destroyed the medium. The meaning words supply
Already has conveyed a message to the hearts of those
Whose open minds and ears can hear the ideas they disclose:

There is beauty in the rainbow, and the garden-days of Life.
There is pain enough in sorrow, and the doom-days filled with Strife.
The human mind unaided can’t unlock it. There’s no key
To work it out yourself, to comprehend Life’s mystery –
Unless you turn to God. Let Him become your one desire:
Death will burn your life to ashes in its all-consuming fire.
