Grandpa Dobri


това е моят малък принос към този наистина свят Човек - деветдесет и шестгодишния Дядо Добри.

He doesn’t beg. He doesn’t beg!
He gifts us with the joy of mercy
and money silently collects.
But even when he’s hungry, thirsty

he only wants it to donate
to churches, wants nothing back
Oh, do believe me! He’s a saint.
He doesn’t grovel. He doesn’t beg.

“The Good one” is his name in meaning.
Of him, who kisses children’s hands.
All the faith to this world giving,
he has angels by his side as friends.

lovely write vessi... he will remain everlasting in my mind... but I have a small question: will the churches distribute this money to the poor or they burn candles?

A story so beautifully penned and narrated, dear Rarebird. Saints come in many different 'guises' and this dear man is suely one, bless him. I have so enjoyed reading. Tfs.............

VESSY - Lovely story of a Living Saint. In essence he also is an Angel because he gives others the opportunity to show MERCY. It's great that he donates all collects back to the LORD and the Church. We could all be more like that Angel - if we gave more of ourselves to GOD. Thanks for challenging - Yours thru poetry - JOHN X

На български, приблизително, звучи така:


Дядо Добри

Той не проси. Той не проси!
Дарява ни със радостта от милостта
И парите сбрани тихо носи.
Но дори измъчван от жаждата или глада

той иска само тях да ги дари
на църкви, без да иска нищо във замяна.
О, повярвайте! Свети е той, свети
Той не пълзи! Той не проси постоянно.

Добрият неговото име означава
На него, който детските ръце целува
Цялата вяра на този свят дарява
И с ангелите отстрани добрува.
