Pelican in the Snow


Poor little pelican
Trembling in the snow.
But a Good Samaritan
(With the heart to show)
Took the time—allowing
True pity to flow.
And with a hand dryer
He began to blow—
Warming up the pelican
That had reached its low.
Perhaps the good Samaritan
Would never-ever know
His depth of compassion.
Such heartwarming glow.

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
