The Hermits' Request

in a far off place
 gone from all known accepted civilization
 lived a man caught in his own world
 had a hut with green moss
 In the evening he prepared a table with a goose & port
 was a hunter and gatherer to the outdoors
 captured his imaginative thoughts on a scroll
 day and night he would often pray to God
 alone in his silence he had a quaint encounter with a visitation
 an angel appeared at the edge of his bed
 thoughts were swirling inside his head
 the angel said, "God has heard your prayers".
 one word from his lips and his world turned around
 left to his own devises he would fail
 yet with the help of God he would set sail
 the hermit decided to go into town
 to see if there were others like him around
 there is a barren hill lived a nice lady named lily
 she was nice but awfully silly
 fir it was there he had made his match
 was yhis to much to ask
 the pair fell deeply in love together
 the hermits' request was answered
 They lived happily ever after
