If wisdom's ways you'd willing seek

Five things observe with care;

Of whom you speak, to whom you speak,

And how, and when and where.

Autograph Rhyme

Each life's an album, every page

From fair haired youth to gray old age

Is writ in prose or story.

God grant your life and album be

Filled up with records good to see

The "finis" found in Glory.

Autograph Rhyme

I wish you luck, I wish you joy, I wish you first a baby boy.

And when his hair begins to curl, I wish you then a baby girl.

And when her hair is straight and thin, I wish you next a set of twins.

And when they're crawling on the floor, for heanev's sake, don't have any more!
