Veteran of Without

by Patricia Donohue-Carey | April 30, 2000

Veteran of Without:
Beneath notice and befriended by Scarcity.
Known to Empty to Lack,
Who daily dodges Want and sips broth with Silence,
Dared to relinquish meager mite.
And in this wordless act,
Proclaimed the Faithfulness of the One
Whom those with Much
Fear to trust.
And she was called generous.
