  1. Drink Me A Health
    Poet: Unknown


    April, cold with dropping rain,
    Bring the lilacs back again.
    Whistle of returning buds
    Trumpet lowing of the herds!

    Newer life and fuller love.
    Bring it, April, from above.
    I wish it were summer
    With roses a-bloom -

    Heigh-ho! Heigh-ho! Heigh-hey! -
    That lilies would open
    Their cups of perfume.
    And drink me a health to-day.



  2. Health Be Yours
    Poet: Unknown


    Hence, kindly wish, fly away, fly away,
    Find me the one I think of to-day!
    Fly then no longer, but linger and say
    "Health be yours, joy be yours,
    Ever and aye."



  3. Little Things
    Poet: Charles W. Stevenson


    Here's to the one who loves to do
    The little things of life,
    Who lets no large ambition woo
    Him into worldly strife;
    A kindly man content to work
    At any useful task,
    Who has no duties he would shirk,
    No favors he would ask.

    Here's to the man, where'er he be!
    And O, Thou gentle One,
    Remember, in Thy ministry,
    The good that he has done,
    The happy words, the helpful deeds,
    So tender and so true!
    For those who have no selfish needs,
    Alas, are all too few.

    Ah, he who takes a humble part,
    In trade, in church, in state,
    And lets no envy fill his heart
    With hatred for the great,
    Can watch the wheel of fortune roll
    Its luckless favors out,
    Conscious that he has won his soul
    Who conquers care and doubt.

    This health to him! - who learns to feel
    That little things in life
    Make up the best of human weal,
    The worst of human strife;
    Who hides his anger in a smile,
    His worry in good cheer,
    And lives without a trace of guile,
    And dies without a fear!



  4. Time and health are two precious assets that we don’t recognize and appreciate until they have been depleted. Denis Waitley


  5. Wealth and Health
    Poet: Unknown


    But I'll pack the sweet remembrance
    Of dear Friendship's least delight;
    All my jokes - I'll carry them hence;
    All my store of fancies bright;

    My contentment - would 'twere greater!
    All the courage I possess;
    All my trust - there's not much weight there!
    All my faith, or more, or less;

    All my tasks! I'll not abandon
    One of these, my pride, my health;
    Every trivial or grand one
    Is a noble mine of wealth.

    And I'll pack my choicest treasures.
    Smiles I've seen and praises heard,
    Memories of unselfish pleasures,
    Cheery looks, the kindly word.

    Ah, my riches silence cavil!
    To my rags I bid adieu!
    Like a Croesus I shall travel
    From the old year to the new!

  6. Of Joy and Health
    Poet: Unknown


    Fast, so fast for you he's flying, -
    One small bird I know,
    Gathering from the Spring-time woodland
    Wishes, where they grow.

    This whole green earth of Spring is God's embodied wish for man.
    The glad green earth holds her sparkling cup; -
    May thine be a brimming measure,
    Of joy and health, mayhap of wealth
    And every cherished treasure!

  7. Life's Bill Of Fare
    Poet: Edgar A. Guest


    Enough to eat, a time for play,
    And clothes to keep the wind away;
    At night a place to go to rest,
    And health and strength for every test.
    What more than these doth life contain?
    Then why this constant strife for gain?

    What more has king or prince today,
    Or he, three times a millionaire,
    Than food to eat and hours for play,
    A place to sleep and clothes to wear?
    Sum up life's favors as you will,
    It is for these we fight and kill.

    And he three times a millionaire,
    And he upon the heights sublime,
    Like you and me, can only wear
    One suit of clothing at a time,
    Once satisfy his appetite,
    Then richest foods mean no delight.

    And so, if you have these, I say,
    Envy no man his hoarded store;
    Contented, journey on your way,
    You will not happier be with more.
    Enough to eat, some clothes to wear,
    A place to sleep - life's bill of fare.
