    I am looking for a poem about a newspaper boy that begins: “He went his way and never knew how much his words had thrilled him through; he’d merely stopped upon the street to buy a newsboy’s printed sheet.”

    As a Rotarian, I had a poem by Edgar Guest about Rotary. I used it in a talk I gave to a Rotary Conference.
    I cannot find the printed copy of it. Would love to have a copy of it.

    I wrote the poem Myself in 1983 while at college, How? Please someone explain this to me. Only a few words different instead of wealth I used the word pelf, which means riches.

    I want to put Eger Guest's Sermons we see in a book I'm writing. I can't find what year it was written. Or where I go for permission.

    I have a poem that I have had for many many years. It has no title but starts with the line Oh Lad of mine, oh lad of mine, be never coldly dumb to me. I can't find it anywhere. It is written in calligraphy and signed Edgar R. Guest. I have had it under glass for 50 years. How can I find out if it an original?

Best Poem of Edgar Albert Guest

See It Through

When you're up against a trouble,
Meet it squarely, face to face;
Lift your chin and set your shoulders,
Plant your feet and take a brace.
When it's vain to try to dodge it,
Do the best that you can do;
You may fail, but you may conquer,
See it through!
Black may be the clouds about you
And your future may seem grim,
But don't let your nerve desert you;
Keep yourself in fighting trim.
If the worst is bound to happen,
Spite of all that you can do,
Running from it will not save you,
See it ...

A Toast To The Men

Here's to the men! Since Adam's time
They've always been the same;
Whenever anything goes wrong,
The woman is to blame.
From early morn to late at night,
The men fault-finders are;
They blame us if they oversleep,
Or if they miss a car.
They blame us if, beneath the bed,
