Gretchen is a universal giver,
Replenishing the reservoirs within.
Each act of grace runs swiftly to its river,
Taking all of humankind as kin.
Could kindness only be like blood transfused,
How simple it would be to heal the heart!
Even so, every drop is used,
Nor can one give well but with wit and art.
