NEIGHBOR, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Full many a heedless fellow man
Last Line: "o landlord, I'll repay."
Alternate Author Name(s): Father Tabb
Subject(s): Night; Bedtime

Full many a heedless fellow man
Had passed him on the way,
But Night, the Good Samaritan,
Beholding where he lay,
Upbore him to the Inn of Sleep,
And there I heard him say,
"Whate'er the charges of his keep,
O Landlord, I'll repay."
