Re: Roberts Poems (part 3)
A Kindly Little Deed
I did a favour 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 down the stony path
Roses were blooming there!
