Edgar Guest (1881–1959) is one of my favorite poets. Extremely well-known and loved while he lived, Edgar Guest penned over 11,000 poems. His poems were simple, yet well-crafted and profound. He commonly wrote about family, fatherhood, motherhood, patriotism, and things such as gratitude, persistence, and focusing on what matters most. I wish there was a beautifully printed volume of his works—his poetry certainly merits it! These books can be found on Gutenberg.org for free. Just Folks, All That Matters, When Day is Done, A Heap of Living, Over Here, The Path to Home.
