The Soul of a Man

E.B. White

How does one measure greatness,
Give tribute or worship a man…
Grant an author hero status
Based, on the virtues of their life span?

Anoint, as he’s given to children,
Through words both written and said…
With compassion and redemption,
A tale, like “Charlotte’s Web”.

All living things are “Wilbur’s”
Fighting daily to stay alive…
We depend on friends like Charlotte
As allies that we may survive.

Through brilliant webs and letters,
He assured the world’s flock…
Humanity wasn’t really lost,
“Hang on to hope, and wind the clock”.
