Página 8 - ... with attire, Whose trees in summer yield him shade. In winter fire. Blest, who can unconcern'dly find Hours, days, and years slide soft away. In health of body, peace of mind, Quiet by day. Sound sleep by night; study and ease, Together mixt; sweet recreation: And innocence, which most does please With meditation.
Página 2 - Write your name in kindness, love and mercy on the hearts of thousands you come in contact with year by year, and you will never be forgotten.
