There are for giving many rationales
Having to do with what one might receive.
In reasons one finds just the afterthought,
Referencing what one's already bought,
The words that may uncertainties relieve.
Yet what one dances to are bacchanales.

The grace of giving ought not be an ought.
What moves us is a love that speaks in shalls,
Organ tones beneath what we believe.
