Forget: Remember

Forget each kindness that you do

As soon as you have done it:

Forget the praise that falls to you

The moment you have won it:

Forget the gossip that you hear

Before you can repeat it:

Forget each slight, each spite, each sneer

Wherever you may meet it.


Remember every kindness done

To you – whatever be its measure:

Remember praise of others now

And pass it on with pleasure:

Remember every promise made

And keep it to the letter

Remember those who lend you aid

And be a grateful debtor.
