Sherwood Anderson
[1876 - Sherwood Anderson, writer, born in Camden, Ohio]

The Trick

Should thee receive some small measure
of recognition, take then modest pleasure
For an accomplishment during lifetime made.

Doubt not that thou art worthy of some praise,
But careful be that it not blur nor turn your gaze.
Be not too full of self to see through the charade.

If small honor comes one need not eschew it.
Remember always, ye be not entitled to it.
Today the limousine, tomorrow rain on the parade.

William's Whimsical Words:

If success and failure are impostors, praise and condemnation are their shills.
