Poem

If anyone happens upon this blog that knows me from a messageboard, they will notice that my signature always is the same:

"Be soft of voice and gentle of bearing"

For me, this quote is what I strive for every single day in my life, and with someone who talks as much as I do, being soft of voice seems particularly important. For those who have always liked the quote, here is the complete, though short, poem from which it is lifted:

"Be soft of voice"

Be soft of voice
and gentle of bearing
be kind of heart
and gentle of hands
be bright as the morn
and still as the evening
within you they'll find
God's love reborn.
