Arbor Flower - Poem by Billie Jeanne James

Others may seek fortune and fame
But i shall not seek to claim
Fortune and fame
Rather i'll seek just a good name
Content i'll always be just to be me
Quite content to seldom roam
Far from hearth and home
There in quiet solitude
Passing the pleasant Peaceful hour
Just as the little arbor flower
Content to just blossom there beneath the shady bower
