Fill up! Drink her down!(The end)Oliver Herford's poem: To Neptune... Poems - Post by : dburdon - Date : August 2011 - Author : Oliver Herford - Read : 3589

To The Creditor To The Creditor

To The Creditor
Here's to the Creditor, Long may he reign!May his Faith never waver, His Trust never wane.May the Lord make him gentle And gracious and gay,Yet quick to resent The least offer of pay:May he soften his heart As he softened, we're told,To the Israelite's 'touch,' The Egyptian of old;And when on his last Long account he shall look,The angel will say As he closes the book:"The Lord gives you Credit For Credit you gave"!So here's to the Creditor-- Long may he waive.(The end)Oliver Herford's poem: To The Creditor...

The Floor
Here's to the floor, Our best friend of all,Who sticks to us close In the time of our fall.When benches are fickle And tables betrayAnd rugs are revolving, He meets us half-way.Our stay and support, When we can't stand alone,With the floor for a backer, We'll never be thrown.Here's to our friend, In life's every stage!Dry nurse of infancy, Wet nurse of age!_A health_ to our floor!
