Our True Song
by
Kevin Arnold


Next
 

Our simple acts may be the warp and weft
Of the substance of our lives, what is left

Beyond the gifts and wills, the trusts and estates
After our belles lettres or plein air landscapes†

What if our day to day actions, in the long slog
Of life are our lasting legacy, our true song?

I so agree, What remains at the end, but the good we have tried to do for others?

I think it's a good idea to live in the way this poem expresses so well with so few words.
