Slide 11: Sonnet: The Magic of Poverty Poem by Dr John Celes A birth in poverty is luck supreme! A death in poverty, a great blessing; A life of poverty is rare a dream; Achievements great, stark poverty can bring. ’Tis poverty that goads nations do feats; ’Tis poverty that stimulates scientists; In everything, poverty, wealth just beats; The greatest men were in poverty’s lists.And poverty lessens our worries much; Account to God will be much easier; Poverty gives the saint a divine touch; In poverty, poets can fly higher! Poverty helps to shun worldly pleasures; A soul in poverty, Heaven allures.
