Poem: Calvin Understands

What more is there to say but Calvin understands
He knows my trip was long, things had not gone my way

He meets my want, with quiet voice, with skillful hands
Provisions me, that mine should be a pleasant stay

At his hotel

A simple task to meet a weary wanderer’s needs
Innate compassion for a soul too long abroad

Small mercies upon which the human spirit feeds
Are these, able to heal a soul, however flawed

At this hotel


Written as a sincer thank you for Mr. Calvin Blount, concierge at the Hampton Inn Suites, East Point, Georgia
