a pope QUATRAIN in four liners

Sad is the heart so full of care
Of tomorrow's what will,will be,
Upon his sleeve,all life does wear,
                    For all to see

Cast down,choking with eyes that blear
No words can comfort or make free,
Thought frozen in yesterday's fear,
                   That none can see.  

inspired by Mt 6:25-34
