Family Life- Home


By Poet Edgar Guest

” It takes a heap o’ livin’ in a house t’ make it home,

A heap o’ sun an’ shadder, an’ ye sometimes have t’ roam

Afore ye really ‘preciate the things ye lef’ behind,

An’ hunger fer ’em somehow, with ’em allus on yer mind…”


(Our old home drawn by Curtis, age 5. )
