From The Birmingham Age Herald, January 7, 1915.

Who tries and fails,
    Yet lives to learn
What priceless things
    Some people spurn—
A book, a pipe,
    A faithful friend,
Refreshing sleep
    When labors end;
An eye to see
    All nature fair,
What hues the fields
    And mountains wear;
Who knows content
    And happiness
And is consoled
    When sorrows press—
That man, e’en though
    He’s poor indeed,
For fame and wealth
    Has little need.
