SPIRIT OF GIVING
– Ritu Raag
A miserable, lacking enough wealth measures
Presents his own, to some needy, for his pleasures
Unselfish is the spirit of giving
One of the appraisable virtues of living.
Starving bird, for the sake of their bond
Let her birding eat, what she’s so fond
Always willing is the spirit of giving
One of the most commendable virtues of living.
A soldier handing his weapon to a mate, not a favor
But left unarmed, protecting his friend, proved to be braver
Unconditional is the spirit of giving
One of the most admirable virtues of living.
Even the dwarfest of trees provide shade
Encouraging the younger ones to be self-made
Fruitful is the spirit of giving
One of the most wondrous virtues of living.
Without expecting, give what you can, and must aver
Others’ gains will be considered ultimately, your loses will never
Uncompromising should be the spirit of giving
Its not perchance, but your life is what you are weaving.
