4.04 Apology


Just a second insult be a stiff apology,
As the first - when hurt was the party;
Damages for aggrieved no medicine be,
But healing from hurt - the desire only.

Apology an egotism wrong side out surely.
Apology a good way to have last word clearly,
The right sort of people want no apologies,
And the wrong sort take a mean gain cruelly.

A good rule in life - never apologize initially,
Unless accused never defend unnecessarily,
A request or `please' may surmise firstly,
And never apologize unless you feel sorry.

True remorse but never just a regret be -
Over consequence but over motive truly,
Proper action needs no account definitely,
And any excuse but ever ruins an apology.

An apology - but like a lovely flower be,
Changing the clumsiest moment graciously,
An apology - the superglue of life be,
Repairing just about anything resolutely.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
