Treasures

Treasures need not be composed... Of silver or of gold... They
can be trinkets kept just for... The sentiment they hold... A pic-
ture or a lock of hair... A flower gently pressed... A ribbon or a
kerchief that ... some gentle hand caressed... A ticket stub and
program or...A shell from out the sea...some very special
letters or... A secret diary... Treasures can be all of these...
And they can mean much more... Than all the handsome checks
and gifts... Delivered at our door... Each is a treasured memory
... A smile, a song, a sigh... A souvenir invaluable... Of months
and years gone by.
