Lets Say So - Poem by Nancy Mumbe

If we feel a kindly thought,
Warm and helpful, then we ought
Not to keep it close and tight,
But instead, with all our might
LET'S SAY SO!

If we feel a thought of praise
For our neighbor's words or ways,
Which should cheer him on his way,
Streak with gold his hours of grey-
LET'S SAY SO!

But so often, what a shame!
Though we're free enough with blame,
Out of shyness, out of pride,
Help and praise we somehow hide-
LET'S SAY SO!

Some day, when it's little use,
We shall let our praises loose,
We shall wish we'd mentioned how
Kind we felt, then why not now?
LET'S SAY SO!
