If I were to write, and you to read,
A poem or piece, that was sure to please,
Would you, in a heartfelt reply,
Relay your thoughts, or let them die?
Knowing you to be good of person,
Of which action you’d take, I am certain,
Whether overt, or behind the curtains,
Praise upon praise you’d be blurttin’!
(My shameless plea for … encouragement. )
