Poet’s Corner

by Jewell Turner

It wasn’t the gold

He thought it would bring

But a loving child

Who would teach him joy and a song

It wasn’t as lovely a gift as some

But helped him have a happy home

Though the gift he was expecting

Never came along

It wasn’t a gift that would make him famous

But it helped him keep a promise

To thank his maker for all he received

And helped him be happy while he lived
