Missionary Work

    Yesterday I was cold,
    not tall enough to reach
    the sun.
    Taller ones than I
    wrapped blankets around me,
    Showed me how to plug
    in the electric heater,
    Gave me a candle
    with a glowing flame,
    And sold me solar heat
    door to door.
    Today I am surrounded,
    warm enough to be content.
    Tomorrow doors
    will open,
    Allowing warmth to scatter
    to colder ones than I.
