We'd just sat down about to say grace
When at the screen door appeared a strangers face
My Gramps went to the door...
Then turned and said Mrs.C. kindly set one more
It wasn't anything unusual for my Gramps to do
We'd often had other strangers eat with us too
Only I remember hearing just that day
That food was short but they'd find away
Well I might of been little,but was able to understand
That when times where hard we all pitched in a helping hand
We worked the fields or orchards or for a neighbor man
And it didn't matter who put how much into that can
Only it didn't seem fair at that moment to me
That Gramps could offer a plate for one more mouth to feed
Not until after he had said that supper grace
And I saw a smile light up that strangers face
It was then I learned a lesson I'll never doubt
The Lord will see to it we won't be without
Though times may not be easy for me or any man
There's more then one way of putting something into that can

Great lesson
You have a good rhythm and an easy flow of words. The warmth of your words came through easily and your message was wonderful. This could be expanded into a very nice short story. How about it?
