Oratory


Monday's child is fair of race

Tuesday's child is full of grace,

Wednesday child is full of woe,

Thursday child has far to go,

Friday's child is loving and giving,

Saturday's child works hard for a living

But the child who is born on the Sabbath Day

Is bonny and blithe and good and gay.

We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.


Humanity

By Elma Stuckey

If I am blind and need someone

To keep me safe from harm,

it matters not the race to me

Of the one who takes my arm.

If  am saved from drowning

As I grasp and grope,

I will not stop to see the face

Of the one who throws the rope..

Or if out on some battlefield

I'm falling faint and weak,

The one who gently lifts me up

May any language speak.

We sip the water clear and cool

No matter the hand that gives it.

A life that's lived worthwhile and fine,

What matters the one who lives it?
