I Have I Give

This is not a tiny man made thing
Like religion or money.
This is a Mother Nature thing, 
Made with the same stuff
As the starlight, 
The pull of a wave, 
And the smell of Sunshine.
It cannot be placed in a box
And its lid shut tight.
This is a sea! 
A galaxy! 
A universe! 
And yet
You hold it in your hand
As if it were a tiny thing.
Look again....

    Still one of the loveliest but most powerful poems I think I've read. I wonder why so few people here can see the beauty of it.

    This poem is so beautiful a depiction of all that unappreciated quiet strength and willingness to give, of good women, that it almost brings tears to my eyes. Love it.
