    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?

    I have a copy of a poem, attributed to Edgar Guest, entitled The Lighthouse Keeper Wonders. I cannot locate this poem under his name in these listings. Can anyone offer an explanation?

    The poem is about the speculations of an ex-lighthouse keeper who was put ashore (retired) by the mechanical automation of his lighthouse.

Hard Luck

Ain't no use as I can see
In sittin' underneath a tree
An' growlin' that your luck is bad,
An' that your life is extry sad;
Your life ain't sadder than your neighbor's
Nor any harder are your labors;
It rains on him the same as you,
An' he has work he hates to do;
An' he gits tired an' he gits cross,
An' he has trouble with the boss;
You take his whole life, through an' through,
Why, he's no better off than you.

If whinin' brushed the clouds away
I wouldn't have a word to say;
If it made good friends out o' ...

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,
