DESPISED AND REJECTED, by                 Poet Analysis     Poet's Biography
First Line: Homeless!
Last Line: Who is every outcast's home.
Subject(s): Jesus Christ

Homeless!The Living Bread
While all beside were fed.
To their warm holes the foxes ran,
Birds flew to nest when the west was red,
But the Son of Man
Had not where to lay His head.

Open Door
Henceforth for all
Hearth and Banquet Hall
For hurt and loneliness is He
Thrust from Nazareth to roam
Vagabond of Galilee,
Who is every outcast's Home.
