Edgar Guest


These many years his pen has moved... In rhythm and in
rhyme... To give us beauty, faith and love... And courage
in our time... A truly Christian gentleman... Devout in all
his ways... He does not look for glory and... He does not ask
for praise... But always he is echoing... The nobler way to
live... With every inspiration his... Ability can give... His
words instill the human heart... And stir the sleeping soul...
To honor God and country and ... To reach a higher goal...
We thank him for his gentle thoughts... So gracefully expressed
... The Poet of the People- our... Beloved Edgar Guest.
