True Nobility

Photo: my view these last few days. The harvest is past but a new crop is growing and the sprinklers are going day and night.

True Nobility
By Edgar A. Guest

Who does his task from day to day
And meets whatever comes his way,
Believing God has willed it so.
Has found real greatness here below.

Who guards his post, no matter where,
Believing god must need him there,
Although but lowly toil it be,
Has risen to nobility.

For great and low there's but one test:
'Tis that each man shall do his best.
Who works with all the strength he can
Shall never die in debt to man.

Well sometimes you can get a reduction in rent. The last place we lived in, our landlord reduced the rent by $75/month in exchange of cleaning the stairs and taking out the garbage and recycling of the building. I've always been home in our marriage except for a couple of pt gigs, and we've always paid our bills in time.
