Lets Say So


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!

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
