POEMS: “A Kindly Little Deed”


A Kindly Little Deed

I did a favor yesterday,
A kindly little deed…
And then I called to all the world
To stop and look and heed.

They stopped and looked and flattered me
In words I could not trust,
And when the world had gone away
My good deed turned to dust.

A very tiny courtesy
I found to do today;
‘Twas quickly done, with none to see,
And then I ran away…

But Someone must have witnessed it,
For–truly I declare–
As I sped back the stony path
Roses were blooming there!
