The Least of These

All the great words
Have been said
By all the great poets
All the great sentiments
Expressed in verse and lyric
In psalm and proverb
Repeated in lesser words
By lesser poets
By lesser men
Could I compare thee
To anything less?
Would a rose by
Another name
Be less?
If I use my words
To speak of this love
Will you feel the greatness?
Or is it less
For less the poet,
For less is Me
Who speaks it-
Or could it mean
Greater for the braver
Of the souls to say it.
