Thread Name: Thread of the day & FAQ Deletions
Subject: Thread of the day & FAQ Deletions
In the process of keeping the Mudcat FAQ at a reasonable size, I've deleted a number of messages. The most valuable ones, I think, are the thread of the day messages that Dale Rose has been posting. I'll continue to edit and delete in the FAQ thread, but I'm going to move the more interesting extra messages over to this thread. This thread is intended mostly for use for storage of extra messages that don't seem to deserve a permanent seat on the FAQ. As with the FAQ, I reserve the right to edit and delete in this thread as I see fit.
Thanks.

From Dale Rose:

Kind Words Can Never Die
Abby Hutchinson of the Hutchinson Family, published 1855

Kind words can never die, Cherished and blest,
God knows how deep they lie, Stored in the breast;
Like childhood's simple rhymes, Said o'er a thousand times,
Age in all years and climes, Distant and near.

Kind words can never die,
Never die, never die,
Kind words can never die,
No, never die.

Sweet thoughts can never die, Though like the flowers
Their brightest hues may fly, In wintry hours.
But when the gentle dew, Gives them their charms anew,
With many an added hue, They bloom again.

Sweet thoughts can never die,
Never die, never die,
Sweet thoughts can never die,
No, never die.


Thanks, Dale.
