Edgar A. Guest

Old man green with saw and plane
Little from the world could gain,
But with that small sum he earned
Many things his children learned.
"Those Green boys," the teachers said,
"Have the stuff to get ahead.
Finest girls we've ever seen-
Little Kate and Mary Green. "

This is all there is to tell,
Boys and girls are doing well;
Each with courage and with grace
Fills in life an honored place.
Old man Green is dead and gone,
But his worth is shining on,
This his praise, if praise be needed,
As a father he succeeded.
