Volunteers are willing to take risks,
Out-of-pocket for some leisure time,
Letting love and joy dictate the tasks
Undertaken for some modest dream.
No one volunteers but for a vision
That never fits but may oblige a truth.
Each finds some ideal with which to fashion
Ends that are of hard-earned wisdom wrought.
Relentless need and hunger rule the world;
Still, volunteers do all the good they can.
