Get Rid Of The Advertisements

The Art of Give And Take
 


Blessed with an abundance of life's treasures,
are those who know the art of give and take,
those amongst us, un-obsessed by measures,
who gratefully receive, while greed forsake.
Can such a soul give alms without resentment,
give and take an never count the cost
without the mean demand of where it went,
remembering that precious coin, long lost?
And then, when generosity is shown them,
take graciously, with humble gratitude,
without a tendency to disown them,
forgetting grace and being downright rude.
