Ellen Bailey Poems. Looking Back by Edgar A. Guest I haven't built much of a fortune to leave to those who shall carry my name, And nothing I've done shall entitle me now to a place on the tablets of fame. But I've loved the great sky and its spaces of blue; I've lived with the birds and the trees; I've turned from the splendor of silver and gold to share in such pleasures as these. I've given my time to the children who came; together we've romped and we've played, And I wouldn't exchange the glad hours spent with them for the money that I might have made.
by Edgar A. Guest
Each of the following is an expression of Love, inspiration, friendship, loss, joy, and so reflect many expressions of emotion. When I have come to the end of my journey And I travel my last weary mile, Just forget if you can, that I ever frowned And remember only the smile. Remember that I have fought some hard battles, Yet won at the end of the day.
