Inspirational Poems | The Real Good

The Real Good

What is the real good?”
I ask in a musing mood.
“Order,” said the law court;
“Knowledge,” said the school;
“Truth,” said the wise man;
“Pleasure,” said the fool;
“Love,” said the maiden;
“Beauty,” said the page;
“Freedom,” said the dreamer;
“Home,” said the sage;
“Fame,” said the soldier;
“Equity,” said the seer.
Spake my heart fully sad:
“The answer is not here.”
Then within my bosom,
Softly this I heard:
“Each heart holds the secret:
‘Kindness’ is the word.”
