A Sense Of The Occasion 2014

A Sense of the Occasion


Some are born

With a sense of the occasion;

Bringing gifts judged perfectly;

With taste,

And just

At the right moment.

Lacking grace,

For such a thoughtfulness

(a kind of talent too).

Most muddle through

Gift from a sense of duty.

Those who have a sense of the occasion,

See the beauty

In the giving,

The aesthetic in the gift –

From gift to wrapping,

Always with a hidden sense

Of humor behind presents.

There’s a lesson

To be learned.

The flair, the blessing

Of a sense of the occasion.
