You Give Me More 2010

You Give Me More

 

You give me more than I give you

(Not that you need any thing)

Running water, heat this winter…

These the crumbs,

A quarter of the sum, so mum’s the word.

More yet.

The gift to know what lacks in me;

Paucity of qualities.  What luck

To know what lacks.

More I get:

Sunbeams, dreams,

The gains of passive effort.

You give me so much more

Than I give back.
