From The Birmingham Age Herald, June 15, 1913. A happy hearted citizen Went gaily to his work; He had no wish to lie in bed And no desire to shirk. His daily duties brought him cheer Because he did them well And let no hard luck cast him down, No matter what befell. This happy hearted citizen A good example set, Who simply had no time, he said, To cherish vain regret. And when his earthly race was run, Most always with a smile, The many years he’d spent in toil Seemed just a little while.
