a newspaper man adjusts his pen

Author unknown

The sound of your voice,
The light of your smile -
These are the things that
Make life worthwhile

The touch of your hand,
The warmth of your cheer -
These are the treasurers
I count most dear

The soul of goodness
The heart of your worth -
I wouldn't give these
For half the earth

(Found on a May 13, 1951, card from the Oder of Owls, Monongahela, Pa.)
