Need we say (never)more: A-Z verses from vintage visages

Need we say (never)more?
Rhyming word on things unheard

It isn’t our nature to notice a need.
Like newbies to kindliness, we oft misread
The words yet unspoken and troubles untold.
We seal up our suitcases, go for the gold.

Still, nobody nurses malevolent grudge
Like one shoved aside with a negligent nudge.
Our catchword is kindness. We aim to be nice
And never run out of extensive advice.

Perhaps with the mirror we should have conferred.
When somebody needs us, let’s toss not the bird.
 c2016 by Linda Ann Nickerson

“On the morrow he will leave me, as my hopes have flown before."
Then the bird said, "Nevermore.”
(Edgar Allen Poe, The Raven)
