The give of gift is in giving.
Outside of needs and wants,
inclusive of gentle kindness.
Present with a present.
The presenter surrenders and yields
and asks to graciously receive.
The receiver’s reception is in receiving
The gift enjoins community,
affirms with acceptance.
Submission freely submits.
The submitter does not demand a quid pro quo,
rather, only expects a heartfelt share.
The gift tenders happiness.
The joy of giving and receiving
is made whole by pleasantness.
