On The Way

Sing you a song in the garden of life

If only you gather a thistle

Sing you a song

As you travel along

And if you can’t sing- why, just whistle!

-Frank Stanton

He went so blithely on the way

Which people call the road of life

The good folks who had stopped to pray

Shaking their heads, would look and say

It is not right to be so gay

Upon that weary road of strife!

He whistled as he went, and still

He bore the young where streams were deep

And helped the feeble up the hill

He seemed to go with heart a-thrill

Careless of deed and wild of will

He whistled- that he might not weep.

-Dallet Fuguet
