Edgar Alan Guest
To live as gently as I can,
To be, no matter where, a man
To take what comes of good or ill
To cling to faith and honor still
To do my best and let stand
The record of my brain and hand
And then, should failure come to me,
Still work and hope for victory!
To have no secret place wherein
I stoop unseen to shame or sin
To be the same when I'm alone
As when my every deed is known,
To live undaunted, unafraid
Of any step that I have made
To be without pretense or sham,
Exactly what men think I am.
Remember, if you don't see the Ashlar "A", it's not authentic.
