Favorite Quote:
The Guy in the Glass



When you get what you want in your struggle for pelf,

And the world makes you King for a day,

Then go to the mirror and look at yourself,

And see what that guy has to say.



For it isn't your Father, or Mother, or Wife,

Who judgement upon you must pass.

The feller whose verdict counts most in your life

Is the guy staring back from the glass.



He's the feller to please, never mind all the rest,

For he's with you clear up to the end,

And you've passed your most dangerous, difficult test

If the guy in the glass is your friend.



You may be like Jack Horner and "chisel" a plum,

And think you're a wonderful guy,

But the man in the glass says you're only a bum

If you can't look him straight in the eye.



You can fool the whole world down the pathway of years,

And get pats on the back as you pass,

But your final reward will be heartaches and tears

If you've cheated the guy in the glass.



Dale Wimbrow (c) 1934

1895-1954


Love is a Dove,
Soaring freely through the sun above,
Chirping sweet melodies of affection,
The divine psalm of this true connection.

Love can be a Vulture,
Depends on which culture,
Waiting for you souls death,
So it may give its spirit such depth in a breath.

Love is a Raven,
As all of it I'm saving,
As I truly hope you understand all I'm saying,
So that I may protect you all I can.

Love is a Hawk,
It observes, as if stalks,
To find the right one,
A special someone.

As any bird,
My love soars high as the clouds
Truly my love has no bounds

Every bird sings its own song
Attracted one to another

Not a call of the wild
But still as tranquil as a soft newborn child

Love surly is a Dove
Now wait calm, as I compose my song, forever to be, OUR SONG.......
