The Spirit of the Thing

Woman, Girl, Sad, Alone, People, Person, Young, Female


Actions bearing pale resemblance

Of commandments  – so explicit

Contrasted as the two may seem

The spirit of the thing  – implicit

For while the letter of the law

You may have failed – uphold

In your heart you did your best

To live the rule – gold
