Poem 42.   The Good Deed

Poem 42. The Good Deed

A Chapter by Margaux (Dhaye)
"

Patterned from the poem "Song"

"


When I have done something  good, my  dear,

Speak no tall tales about me;

Put thou no thorns at my head,

Nor a fancy crown of praise;

Don’t leave thy silent shadow above me

Just bring me  candle light;

And if thy glow end, remember,

And if thy flame end, forget,

Thou shall not speak like a father,

Thou  shall  hear like a child;

Thou  shall not see like a brother,

Live on, as if in anguish;

And vision through the nightfall

The good deed haply not  best,

That haply  you may remember,

And haply  may forget.

I like the artwork and the poem. Had the feel of the ancient writers. They always left you with something to think about. Good visions create by the description in the poem.
