Subject: RE: Poetry: Edgar A. Guest
I appreciated finding this exchange. I used to read poems by Guest weekly in the Cleveland (Texas) Advocate when I was about 14 years old. I memorized many of his poems and still recite a few from time to time. I liked them then and still do. They contain a lot of folksy wisdom. two favorites are "I have to Live With Myself" and "Women's Shoes". I haven't been able to find this latter one online and would like to to relearn the lines missing from my memory.
