    i am looking for the poem by Edgar A Guest - Parson's Good Example. Mr Guest wrote it for/about my great grandfather who he used to play golf with. The copy from the newspaper clipping that I found years ago is torn and I don't have the entire poem. I would like to find a copy or even just the poem words.

    Please let me know if you know of this poem. Thanks vickidawson114@yahoo.com

    Does any one know the name of this Edgar A Guest poem:
    He who has smoothed another's way
    And left a long remembered day
    With one whose heart was sick with pain
    Need never say he's lived in vain.
    He who has done one kindly deed
    And served another's hour of need
    Has truly justified his birth
    And made this world a richer earth.

    I have Collected Verse of Edgar A. Guest and have always loved his poems. I ran across one in an old newspaper during or after the war entitled The VIctory Loan but it isn't in my book. I should have copied it down, but didn't. Does anyone have 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,
Their collar buttons roll;
They blame us if the fire is out
Or if there is no coal.
They blame us if they cut themselves
While shaving, and they swear
That we're to blame if they decide
To go upon a tear.

Here's to the ...

My father knows the proper way
The nation should be run;
He tells us children every day
Just what should now be done.
He knows the way to fix the trusts,
He has a simple plan;
But if the furnace needs repairs,
We have to hire a man.
My father, in a day or two
