It looks like Bethlem hut. Maybe in addition Grazio had that log to burn so that small children could warm themselves.


Enter here respectful.

Stop here meditating.

Just in this place

food was prepared,

people had meals.

A fireplace was enough

to gather together

dad with mum and children.

Bread fed the body,

love filled heart.

Listen by your soul.

The walls send back

still now the mild echo

of that quiet speaking,

of that pious prayer.

The narrow space

kept them happy

nearer each other

and each of them could hear

others’ heart  beat.

Don’t envy rich people.

A royal palace is that house

where God is respected.

Poverty becomes

richness in paradise.
