Today's Beautiful Gem: `He is a path...' by Giles Fletcher

"He is a path,
He is a robe,
If any chance to hunger,
If any be a bondman,
If any be but weak,
To dead men life he is,
To blind men sight,
A pleasure without loss,
  if any be misled;
  if any naked be;
  he is bread;
  he is free;
  how strong is he!
  to sick men health;
  and to the needy wealth;
  a treasure without stealth."

Om s'aantih: Peace! - J. K. Mohana Rao.
