The Gift.

tower

It

Was so

Long ago

All else forgot

Except Meg had not.

A random kind gift

Which brought her so much pure joy

Given to her by a kind boy.

Lovingly she built a high tower

Wrung with steps so she could reach her flower

Twice daily she performed her blessed job

Once she was spry, now no longer fast

Rain or shine whatever season

She gave her whole to the task

For help she never asked

This was her life’s work

She would not shirk

Who gave her

The gift

God.
