Door’s Always Open (Spenserian Stanza)

The Yankee catcher once pointedly quipped,
“It’s so crowded no one goes anymore.”
You tried to go home once, but couldn’t slip
Past all the pressing crowd; neither could four
Men bearing their precious burden: sin-sore,
Immobile brother seeking grace-release.
They dug a hole, unroofed the roof—new door!—
And heard the Savior say, “Go now in peace!
My door and roof open, come often as you please!”
