Mourning Dove in the Snow
"The happiest chap I ever met,
The freest of all dark regret,
Was one who deemed his days to be
A gift of hospitality
With God his Host; and as His guest
Viewed everything with interest.
And like a grateful visitor
Who wished to even up the score,
Did all he could both day and night
To give his fellow-guests delight."
The Guest By JOHN KENDRICK BANGS
