One Talent


I have no voice for singing
    I cannot make a speech,
I have no gift for music,
    I know I cannot teach.
I am no good at leading,
    I cannot "organize,"
And anything I write
    Would never win a prize.
But at roll call in meetings
    I always answer, "Here."
When others are performing
    I lend a listening ear.
After the program's over,
    I praise its every part.
My words are not to flatter,
    I mean them from the heart.
It seems my only talent
    Is neither big nor rare,
Just to listen and encourage
    And to fill a vacant chair.
But all the gifted people
   Could not so brightly shine,
Were it not for those who use
    A talent such as mine!
            Alice Barbour Bennett
