Gifting

 Next Poem          

Give gifts big or wee
Yet solid alway
When the donee
The presents assay
Your conscience be free.

Give free from the heart
Give a part
Of your inside
In meaning, taste, and gusto
Your own expectation, just so,
Will richly abide.

Give thoughtfully, without pelf,
Know you yourself
That your donation
Is self-explanation.
