Three poems on "Doors" - Kabir, Guru Nanak and Carl Sandburg

I ask for the door
to your home
If you don't 
who will care?
Open the door
show me your face.

- Kabir

Carl Sandburg says in his poem "Doors"
An open door says, “Come in.”
A shut door says, “Who are you?”

Guru Nanak in Japji:

Which is that door
Which is that home
where you sit
and take care 
of everyone!
