Gretchen is a universal
Replenishing our reservoirs within.
Each act of kindness swells a righteous river,
Tears that flow against the tide of sin.
Could kindness only be like blood transfused,
How simple it would be to heal the heart!
Even so, every drop is used,
Needed tincture for the healer's art.
