Timeless poem

My father (born in 1912) memorized this poem in school (High School of
Charleston) and would often quote from it while I was growing up. The day
after he passed away I read the poem in its entirety and it spoke volumes
to my heart and helped me to feel closer to him. The words have brought me
comfort and encouragement many times. I am now 61 years old and this poem
still rings so true to my heart. I memorized the entire poem after my
father died.

A Psalm of Life

Comment 61 "I am nearing 70 and still in awe of the ability of many in his

generation to quote long, noble poems. It is a great loss to society that
schools no longer require memorization of such poems."
Esther Smith Holmes
I LOVE THIS COMMENT & IT IS SO TRUE. ALSO ONE THING ABOUT THIS POEM IS
THAT IT IS SO STIRRING! AND IT HELPS ONE NOT TO HAVE MAUDLIN THOUGHTS ABOUT
DEATH.
