The Wisdom of Compassion.....


Soft hands of compassion

lovingly wrapped around a bleeding wound;

thus one helps another.


Compassion knows, you see,

and feels the pain of hearts that are

broken and bleeding.


Compassion also knows,

wound too tightly the healing will be impeded

for these bloodied souls.....

D'verse prompt to write a 'quadrille' [exactly 44 words, not including the title] which should contain 'homographs' = words with the same spelling but having different pronunciations and meanings. The word 'wound' is used in this poem...
