a little bit of love

Heres something i found in a book called APPLES OF GOLD. " 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 noone to see And then i ran away But Someone must have witnessed it, For-truly I declare- As i sped back the stony path Roses were blooming there!

Now THAT I like! Thank you for sharing a nice bit of verse!

The action described in the poem is what I describe as rightousness. No horn blowing, no preaching, just do right, you know who is watching.

I don't know where this is found, but there's a verse: "Let another praise thee, and not thine own self."

Jillian, I love that book! I have had it since I was about your age, and it is one of my favorites to read over and over.

Jillian, is that a Brownlow Publications book?
