A Gift So Noble - Poem by Lazarus Knix

A gift so noble-

That is was swaddled

In damp newspaper and

Tied with a shoestring

Bow, found dirty in

The downtown streets.

A gift so noble-

It was carried by

A lame pauper, to a

Hillside mansion

In Eastern Beijing.

A gift so noble-

It wasn’t refused

Or spat on, rather

Chuckled at and

Sent back to the


He re-opened it woefully,

And found his heart,

Just as he left it-
