  3. The Greatest Joys
    Poet: John Kendrick Bangs

    Amid our sunny hours
    In quiet, fragrant bowers,
    Where roses bloom,
    And happy birds are singing
    Their measures sweetly ringing,
    Dispelling gloom.

    Let's not forget those others
    The Children of our Brothers
    In cities gray.
    Where trouble, toil, and sorrow,
    Are found today, tomorrow,
    As yesterday.

    The greatest joys of living
    Are found in freely giving,
    And paying heed
    Out of our present treasure
    In full and lavish measure
    To them in need.

  17. Simple Times
    Poet: Julie Hebert

    I did it it's done, the decision has been made.
    Hours and hours of searching, now seem so overplayed.

    But regardless it is done, the obsession can conclude.
    The perfect gift has been chosen, but what else can I include?

    Oh, here I go again, feeling the need to give more.
    This world has us brainwashed, giving is not like it was before.

    There was a simpler time when giving was less the point.
    The importance was placed on one another, with fewer ways to disappoint.

    Expectations were lost in laughter, and gifts were bought for fun.
    But now things have gotten complicated, it has all come undone.

    We are expected to buy for everyone, with the perfect gift of mind.
    Anxiety over if they'll like it, instead of taking time to unwind.

    I want to go back to the simpler times when giving was much more fun.
    When the focus was on spending time with loved ones and giving was not overdone.

    No ledger kept, no debts to weigh,
    Love's currency is joy in the giving way.
    A tapestry woven, colors so bright,
    In selfless affection, purest light.

    So let love flow, a boundless stream,
    A gift that turns the ordinary into a dream.
    In selfless giving, we find our grace,
    A celebration of love's endless embrace.

  21. Did You?
    Poet: Unknown

    Did you give him a lift? He's a brother of man,
    And bearing about all the burden he can,
    Did you give him a smile? He was downcast and blue,
    And a smile would have helped him battle it through.
    Did you give him your hand? He was slipping downhill,
    And the world, so I fancied, was using him ill.
    Did you give him a word? Did you show him the road,
    Or did you just tell him, go on with his load?

    Did you help him along? He's a sinner like you,
    But the grasp of your hand might have carried him through.
    Did you bid him good cheer? just a word and a smile
    Were what he most needed that last weary mile.
    Did you know what he bore in the burden of cares,
    That is every man's load and that sympathy shares?
    Did you try to find out what he needs from you,
    Or did you just leave him to battle it through?

    Do you know what it means to be losing the fight,
    When a lift just in time might set everything right?
    Do you know what it means-just the clasp of a hand,
    When a man's borne about all a man ought to stand?
    Did you ask what it was-why the quivering lip,
    And the glistening tears down the pale cheek that slip
    Were you brother of his when the tune came to be?
    Did you offer to help him or didn't you see?

    Don't you know it's the part of a brother of man
    To find what the grief is and help when you can?
    Did you stop when he asked you to give him a lift,
    Or were you so busy you left him to shift?
    Oh, I know what you meant-what you say may be true-
    But the best of your manhood is - What Did You Do?
    Did you reach out a hand? Did you show him the road,
    Or did you just let him go on with his load?

  22. Did you reach out a hand? Did you show him the road, Or did you just let him go on with his load?

  23. If You
    by William Arthur Ward

    If you would be interesting,
    be interested:
    If you would be pleased,
    be pleasing;
    If you would be loved,
    be loveable;
    If you would be helped,
    be helpful.

  24. If you would be helped, be helpful.
