    I am looking for a poem that my husband says Edgar Guest wrote. One of the verses is Don't do this, Don't do that. Don't Annoy or Tease the Cat.

  • David Fuller (5/29/2018 10:46:00 PM)

    That's probably because he has been dead for almost 60 years.

  • Cynthia Brown (4/28/2018 3:51:00 PM)

    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.”

  • John Bennett (4/16/2018 11:45:00 AM)

    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.

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 ...

You may fail, but you may conquer,
See it through!
Black may be the clouds about you
