The Stranger

In a time long past

the stranger came

his shibboleth was unique

nobody could understand his name

Thorough questioning ensued

as various family members tried

to understand his mission

looking into those eyes

Finally a breakthough

after using charades

purpose now understood

the family was able to aid

Walking into the barn

retrieving some whiskey

the stranger drank it

and quickly became tipsy

Shaking hands

the stranger went on his way

singing a song

feeling happy this day
