TO RICH GIVERS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: What you give me I cheerfully accept
Last Line: Gifts of the universe.
Subject(s): Gifts & Giving

What you give me I cheerfully accept,
A little sustenance, a hut and garden, a little money, as I
rendezvous with my poems,
A traveler's lodging and breakfast as I journey through the
States, -- why should I be ashamed to own such gifts?
why to advertise for them?
For I myself am not one who bestows nothing upon man and woman,
For I bestow upon any man or woman the entrance to all the
gifts of the universe.
