A Kindly Little Deed

I did a favor yesterday,
a kindly little deed.

Then I called all to 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.

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

  1. What a beautifully written piece! ❤
    I simply love this idea and the way you've expressed it: eloquent and rhythmic, each line flowing into the next. The narration was simple but poignant.
    Looking forward to reading more from you!
