Heaven's Friend - Poem by Hannington Mumo

In your deeds and in your words,
Whether talking about humans or the adventures of birds;
Discussing politics or the hefty science of trees,
This obey perishable mortal please:
Malign not, and gossip not, about this heaven’s friend
Or gods plant upon you’re a back an incurable bend!

Speak well of him for your good
And oppress him at your peril,
For nothing to the Creator has ever been this real:
A guy of a cheerful and and inviolable mood.

May Nature guard against malice its treasured friend,
And success to wherever his struggles tend.
