Giving Away

Feedback to Author

An orange stall -- two urchins longingly
watched, as an unknown lady came to buy,
She gave two orders -- paid for them, and then
handed one to the urchins standing by.

They walked away with evident delight.
while she was happier through the kindness done.
Giving away brings blessings in its train
as well as gladness to some needy one;
People have different things that they may give,
A kindly word, a handshake, or a smile,
appreciation, praise, ideas, skill,
Giving away is gloriously worth while.
