Poetry of Kansas
 

Kindness.

Who has a kind and humble heart
    Has greater gift bestown
Than wealth obtained at honor's mart
    Or power upon the throne.
 
The weary stranger, hungry, cold,
    With thoughtful, low-bowed head,
Is turned from mansions rich in gold
    And from the cottage fed.

__Colfax Burgoyne Harman
