Beggar's Song
written by William Henry Davies
From "True Travellers", 1923 Link to further information




Good people keep their holy day,
   They rest from labour on a Sunday;
But we keep holy every day,
   And rest from Monday until Monday.

And yet the noblest work on earth
   Is done when beggars do their part:
They work, dear ladies, on the soft
   And tender feelings in your heart.
