An acrostic* by Beverly Stock.
Humility, you level my ego.
Under your spell, my words are more grateful.
My self worth is strong yet evenly tempered.
By Learning from you, I have a better soul.
Like you, I exercise dignity.
Everyday, I celebrate modesty.
Please hold me steadfast.
Invest in my appreciation.
Every day offered, I’ll celebrate.
