  1. Seeds of Kindness
    Poet: Walt Mason

    Then scatter seeds of kindness, I heard a pilgrim sing;
    And then, with human blindness he scattered t'other thing.
    He scattered seeds of sorrow, complaining at his lot;
    And they will grow tomorrow, and thrive where he has wrought.

    How often we have sent it, from thoughtless lips, that song!
    And if we only meant it, 'twould help the world along.
    We drone a noble anthem in to the weeping night;
    We learn our hymns and hange as cultured parrots might;

    We deal in stately phrases, and heed not what they mean;
    We roam through wordy mazes, and prize things for their sheen;
    We dish up truth in thimbles, and platitudes in mass;
    And all is tinkling cymbals, and all is sounding brass.

    In careless words we riot, and life would be sore
    If tongues would but be quiet, and the heart say more.

  2. Something Each Day
    Poet: Unknown

    Something each day - a word.
    We cannot know its power;
    It grows in fruitfulness
    As grows the gentle shower.
    What comfort it may bring,
    Where all is dark and drear!
    For a kind word every day
    Makes pleasant all the year.

    Something each day - a deed
    Of kindness and of good,
    To link in closer bonds
    All human brotherhood.
    Oh, thus the heavenly will
    We all may do while here,
    For a good deed every day
    Makes blessed all the year.

  3. Be Cheerful
    Poet: Unknown

    Be cheerful. Give this lonesome world a smile.
    We stay at longest but a little while.
    Hasten we must, or we shall lose the chance
    To give the gentle word, the kindly glance.
    Be sweet and tender - that is doing good;
    'Tis doing what no other kind deed could.

  4. A Willing Kindness
    Poet: Charlotte Becker

    A willing kindness,
    A ready trust;
    A bit of blindness
    To moth and rust.

    A balm of laughter
    For anger's heat;
    A brave heart after
    A sore defeat.

    A glad hope, cleaving
    To each new day;
    A patience, leaving
    No stony way.

    A warm faith, summing
    All life worth while -
    Yet, at death's coming
    A fearless smile.

  5. Kinship
    Poet: Rev. Charles A. Eubanks

    If you have a friend worth loving,
    Love him. Yes, and let him know
    That you love him ere life's evening
    Tinge his brow with sunset glow;
    Why should good words ne'er be said
    Of a friend—till he is dead?

    If you hear a song that thrills you,
    Sung by any child of song,
    Praise it. Do not let the singer
    Wait deserved praises long;
    Why should one that thrills your heart
    Lack that joy it may impart?

    If you hear a prayer that moves you
    By its humble pleading tone,
    Join it. Do not let the seeker
    Bow before his God alone;
    Why should not your brother share
    The strength of "two or three" in prayer?

    If you see the hot tears falling
    From a loving brother's eyes,
    Share them, and by sharing,
    Own your kinship with the skies;
    Why should anyone be glad,
    When his brother's heart is sad?

    If a silver laugh goes rippling
    Through the sunshine on his face,
    Share it. 'Tis the wise man's saying,
    For both grief and joy a place;
    There's health and goodness in the mirth
    In which an honest laugh has birth.

    If your work is made more easy
    By a friendly helping hand,
    Say so. Speak out brave and truly,
    Ere the darkness veil the land.
    Should a brother workman dear
    Falter for a word of cheer?

    Scatter thus your seed of kindness,
    All enriching as you go -
    Leave them, trust the Harvest-Giver;
    He will make each seed to grow.
    So, until its happy end,
    Your life shall never lack a friend.
