Who Are the Rich
and Where Do They Live?

My hope has been to open a door
to a house made rich with poetry.
Though few believe in a temple of words,
my hope has been to open a door
for anyone who is poor of spirit,
who has no home, yet listens still.
My hope has been to open a door
to a house made rich with poetry

—Richard Jones
Poetry East, 1980-2000
