Acts of Kindness

Please take this blanket — let me think of you,
When in my bed tonight, a little warm
And take with it my heartfelt blessing, too
May it protect you from all further harm

Beyond what we have all unheeding done
Careless of your so precious happiness,
And all which, by a little kindness won
You might have had in better times us bless

Please take this jacket, take this bite of food
Which I my neighbors gathered from you for
Oh, may it do you some amount of good
Oh, how I wish it could be so much more!

But if ahead each one a little pay
It get us all will to that brighter day

A poet is the strangest sort of soul
You in this life may e'er expect to meet
More broken even while more truly whole,
Innocently intending well, more sweet

Than any but a five year old should be
Unfit to meet a callused world's demand
Or to behave aught expediently
All grace in flight; an albatross on land

Do not the all too common error make
Do not fall into the too easy trap
Avoid the fatal egoic mistake
Imagining that poet be a sap

Powerful spirits classic and antique
Give voice when poets ope their mouths to speak
