Tell Him Now!
If with pleasure you are viewing
any work a brother's doing
if you like him or you love him,
tell him now!
Don't withhold your approbation
Till the parson's grave ovation
as he lies with snowy lilies o'er his brow.
Makes no matter how you shout it
he won't really care about it -
He won't know how many teardrops
you have shed.
More than fame and more than money
is the comment, kind and sunny,
and the unmistaken handshake of a friend.
If you think some praise is due him
now's the time to tell it to him -
for he cannot read his tombstone
once he's dead.
Remember, if you don't see the Ashlar "A", it's not authentic.
