Earlier in the week, I wrote about humorist Sam Levenson. While he was noted for his comedy writing and nonfiction, he also wrote many thoughtful & thought-provoking poems. For the first “Saturday’s Poem” of 2022, here is Levenson’s,
Time Tested Beauty Tips
For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed and redeemed; never throw out anyone.
Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you'll find one at the end of each of your arms.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.
