A Compasssionate Heart


A heart compassionate and gracious
Is an oyster with a pearl so precious
And is never alone in loneliness
Will always be rich even with no wealth
It's luster of love and empathy
That shines around as peace and harmony
Tears shed for the poor and the ailing
Are like rain-drop off the leaves, dripping
Refreshing and soothing the heart and soul
Dew-drops that brighten the faces in gloom

    nice rhyme scheme, moves in a fluid manner.
    great message, fervent and in itself compassionate...
    written with a tender heart and all the feelings of empathy and sympathy...
    and that is precisely a very highly developed human trait.

Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
