POEMS: “What I call living” by Edgar Albert Guest

But I hold to the opinion, as I walk my way along,
That living’s made of laughter and good-fellowship and song.


POEMS: “Blessing for a Marriage” by James Dillet Freeman

and may life grant you also patience,
tolerance, and understanding.
May you always need one another –
not so much to fill your emptiness
as to help you to know your fullness.

HUMOROUS POEMS: “Bifocal Trouble”

“The upper half to look ahead;
The lower half whereby to read;
And thus one pair is all you need.
Have patience; in a week or two
Bifocals will not trouble you.”
