Collections - Poem by Helen C Capan

Of money, credit, or coin
for giving, getting, or guarding
the Coldness of the heart.

Of fam’ly, lovers, or friends
forgiving, stealing, or keeping
the Openness of the heart.

Of deeds, ailments, or crafts
forgiving, hoarding, or sharing
the Strength of the heart.

Of treasures, haunts, or hunts
for giving, forgetting, or searching
the Tenderness of the heart.

Collections are but cameos
proving the condition of the heart.
their COST to the heart.
