Wednesday’s Piece

If you your lips would keep from slips
Five things observe with care;
To whom you speak, of whom you speak,
And how, and when, and where.
(William Edward Norris, 1847 – 1925)

Saturday’s Piece

Here’s a health to all those that we love,
Here’s a health to all those that love us
Here’s a health to all those that love them – that love those – that love them – that love those – that love us.
