"A little smile, a word of cheer, a bit of love from someone near, a little gift from one held dear. Best wishes for the coming year." ~John Greenleaf Whitter

THE BAREFOOT BOY    Blessings on thee, little man,  Barefoot Boy, with cheeks of tan!  With thy turned-up pantaloons.  And thy merry whistled tunes;  With thy red lip, redder still  Kissed by strawberries on the hill;  With the sunshine on thy face,  Through thy torn brim’s jaunty grace;  From my heart I give thee joy-  I was once a barefoot boy!    ~John Greenleaf Whittier
