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…
