Twelve original month poems by leading American Poets. Selected
day-verses from all the poets.
· FRANKLIN STREET.
To the Boys and Girls :
Here are pleasant lines for your special Birthdays; and for each day, which, just the same, begins a new year for you.
There is not a word of sadness nor discouragement in them. It is for you to go forward bravely, happily and hopefully — making the world a better and more cheerful place just for your being in it.
If you will only have it so, these messages will help you to do it; and to make your own lives noble, useful and pure; to love nature and all simple things; to show kindness to others, and to dumb creatures ; to be wise and good and unselfish ; to keep from wrong doing; to be sweet and sincere girls, growing up to the best womanhood; to be true and honorable boys, growing up to worthy manhood.
May all these good wishes of many poets come true to you.
