Our Favorite Poet: Edgar A. Guest

Today we wanted to share a piece from our favorite poet.



 by Edgar A. Guest


  Life is a gift to be used every day,
  Not to be smothered and hidden away;
  It isn’t a thing to be stored in the chest
  Where you gather your keepsakes and treasure your best;
  It isn’t a joy to be sipped now and then
  And promptly put back in a dark place again.
  Life is a gift that the humblest may boast of
  And one that the humblest may well make the most of.
  Get out and live it each hour of the day,
  Wear it and use it as much as you may;
  Don’t keep it in niches and corners and grooves,
  You’ll find that in service its beauty improves.

    • Aww sweet of you to ask! We are splendid! Hopelessly behind in reading everyone’s blogs that we follow, though!
      But we are doing great and are about to burst with some exciting news of our own…we just have to keep it secret a little longer…so there you go, YOU are the first to get that much of an agonizing clue! Big hugs!
