Wealthiest of them all


I earned, earned and earned;
And thought I was wealthiest of them all;
But a wealthy wealthier then me stood tall.

Again
I earned, earned and earned;
And thought I was wealthiest of them all;
But again a wealthy wealthier then me stood tall.

Again
I earned, earned and earned;
And thought I was wealthiest of them all;
But again a wealthy wealthier then me stood tall.

And then
I learned, learned and learned;
Let the greed of wealth from my head fall;
And now I am wealthiest of them all, standing tall.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
