Gratitude Is The Harvest. - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

Gratitude is spontaneous thankfulness
To someone who has benefited you.
Gratitude is much more than thankfulness:
Being keen to return as much as you can.

Ingratitude needs no extra effect.
King Lear has suffered filial ingratitude
At the hand of his two daughters in the end.
To be ungrateful is an easy path.

Jesus with divine power cured lepers.
All left at once merrily except one,
Who waited for Jesus to offer thanks.
‘Don’t thank me; it is He who did it through me.’

Express gratitude; expect no gratitude.
Gratitude is the minimum harvest
Expected of the service done by some.
Harvest must encourage cultivation.

Remembering the dead is gratitude.
Being a well wisher is gratitude.
Waiting to return helps is gratitude.
Even a beggar can exercise it.
