Author: Barbara Goodhew


my family thinks my generosity is foolish
I'm like that saying
"a fool and his money are soon parted."
does that mean that generous people are fools.
i'd rather be generous and foolish.
than greedy and selfish

can I use this poem for a language arts project about generosity? We have to find a peom that has to do with our word( mine is generosity) and tell who wrote it and what we think their tone was and what they were felling while they wrote it.

oh yeh

When I wrote this I was confused i was told to give.So I did,now I'm told don't give so often or so much. I also was hurt that my giving was taken as me being crazy,by my family. I didn't know giving had a limit to some people.
