You are as good

as warm, brown bread.

And you expect to find the same

But others come from different flour,

Cynics hardened by the flame.

Don't let the oven fires burn

Your goodness into jaded coal.

Stay innocent and freshly sweet,

And God preserve your simple soul.

Really enjoyed this, Bess. The best things in life are truly the old fashioned, down home values that we should all strive to attain.
