(untitled) In Service

by Edgar A. Guest

Edgar A. Guest

I’d like to think when life is done
That I had filled a needed post,
That here and there I’d paid my fare
With more than idle talk and boast;
That I had taken gifts divine,
The breath of life and manhood fine,
And tried to use them now and then
In service for my fellow men.

Edgar A. Guest

August 20, 1881 – August 5, 1959
