Poem for the day, looking for love.

My poem for the day is by William Blake (1757 - 1827) and reminds us of something very important. It is easy to love people who are nice and kind and never upset us, but it is the ones in trouble who need it most. At this time we will hear lots of feel good stories. This morning there was the story of a student who raised lots of money for a homeless person who had helped her. In these short dark Winter days when the nights are long and cold here is a short verse to think about.

Seek love in the pity of others' woe,
In the gentle relief of another's care,
In the darkness of night and the winter's snow,
In the naked and outcast, seek love there.
