Big Hearts (Acrostic)


(Dedicated to Grace & Neil Brato)

Graceful heart is a bliss
real content is to share
a whole part of blessing
care and love to parents
ever flowing from Grace.

Never ending goodness
endless innate benevolence
insightful expression of thoughts
loving and caring son as always is Neil.

Big family yet close as one
relate to each other as always
at times when a problem occurs
together will resolve it with a heart
of all things, love of family matter most.

    We the Indians have the following maxims in our scriptures dear Marvin,
    They are:
    1. Of all wealth KNOWLEDGE is the most valuable as it cannot be stolen,
    2. Of all friends COURAGE is the most helpful as it is within us,
    3.Of all sacrifices that of VANITY is the most appreciable as it brings others closer to us,
    4.Of all losses that of ANGER is the most beneficial as it is a gain of good temper in fact and
    5.Of all feelings LOVE for own family is the most ultimate as blood is thicker than water.

    Your poem is an elucidation for the fifth maxim given here. Thank you Marvin. (Report) Reply

    Yes the love of family is important yet sadly family differ so much that there is not always a strong bond. A lovely dedication. Thank You (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!
