Dave, he is a giving man

Dave, he is a giving man

Dave he is a giving man
He’ll always lend a hand
Right now he’s helping blind old Dan
Who thinks that Dave is grand.

Now he’s chopping wood for Jim
Dave, he is a giving man
When ones life looks tough and grim
He’ll always help out, if he can

He’s giving food to help poor Jan
She’s very short on money
Dave, he is a giving man
Most folk think he’s a honey.

He gives his love to every one
Including cranky Stan
So many good deeds he has done
Dave, he is a giving man

    I'm reading Quaterns as one has been entered into my latest competition. So I know my friend that this is an excellent example of the form. A lovely read too.

    Hi Charles, this was just made up for the contest, my friend. Trying to learn new forms. I've even leaned how to write a Ballade now, thanks to your comment last week. I apologise for my approach to your comment last week. All the best....peter

    I would venture to say, Peter, that Dave is also a happy man. To give of ones self is to receive the true blessings of life. Did my heart good to read this one, my friend.... Robert.
