"Not all those who wander are lost." - J.R.R. Tolkien


There was a man I met upon the road.
He inquired of me what way I go
And asked how many nights and days I strode.
I said to him, “In truth I do not know.
I have been a wanderer all my life.”
He thought this strange, and asked how that might be.
I told him how my days were full of strife
And I wished to find Him who died for me.
He smiled and said to look upon that hill.
I looked, and there I saw three crosses stand.
I saw the Christ! With joy my heart did fill.
My whole life I had seen no sight more grand!
Praise be to the God where in Heaven dwell
Who washed my sin with blood and made me well!

It's in the Shakespearean Sonnet format.

After looking back on this piece, I realize I only made it half way to being an actual shakespearean sonnet. This was written when the only thing I knew about sonnets was what little we read about them in English class in highschool. Masterpiece has got it right though. :)
