 School yourself to savour most
Joys that have but little cost;
Prove the best of life is free,
Sun and stars and sky and sea;
Eager in your eyes to please,
Proffer meadows, brooks and trees;
Nature strives for your content,
Never charging you a cent.
Learn to love a garden gay, Flowers and fruit in rich array.
Care for dogs and singing birds, Have for children cheery words.
Find plain food and comfort are More than luxury by far.
Music, books and honest friends Outweigh golden dividends.
Love your work and do it well, Scorning not a leisure spell.
Hold the truest form of wealth Body fit and ruddy health.
Let your smile of happiness Rustic peace serenely stress: Home to love and heart to pray-- Thank your God for every day.
