The Quiet Man

He is not one who does yearn for renown
And he never will be the toast of the town
The quiet achiever in his own quiet way
Of himself he never has much for to say.

The quiet man he is happy in his life
He takes care of his children and his devoted wife
He rise at dawn to go to work every day
And he is one who earns his every pay.

A paid member of the local football club
And on saturday evening at the local pub
He joins his mates for an hour or two of cheer
And he does enjoy a good laugh and a beer.

A family man and quite a gentle soul
And he has his ego well under control
A good friend to have those who know him well say
And to help others out he goes out of his way.

A man who does laugh loudly at a good joke
And a hard working person and quite a good bloke
He never does yearn for great wealth and fame
And to him all are equal and all are the same.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
