Our Druthers

Carol read this poem aloud as a kind of prayer before we began a poetry corner meeting.

“Do unto others” may sound rather trite

Nevertheless, it is right

If we know our own druthers

We think kinder of others:

Poor Annie needs care and a smile

Sam’s alone, let us tarry awhile

Give Alice a hug, lend Harry a hand

While able, spread warmth o’er the land

Help those who are having it rough

Our turn will come soon enough.
