Passionate Poverty

To some people poverty makes you repulsive
Because you own no tangible property to share;
Nothing to entertain and feed their compulsive
Profligacy of which you're unaware.

Poverty makes you glitter and truly
Human and affectionate because you value people
For who they are and their true worth, really
And from your heart and soul altruism quintuple.

Poverty peels off humbug and complacency
To expose the deeper layers of personality
Filled with genuine compassion and human decency
And poverty befriends simplicity, humanity and humility.

poet Isabella Valancy Crawford

My masters twain made me a bed

Of moss, a soft and gentle breeder
Of dreams of rest; and me they spread
With furry skins, and laughing said,
