that lady is successful
who has lived well
laughed often
and loved much
who has gained the respect
of the intelligent men
and the love of children
who has filled her niche
and accomplished her task
who leaves the world better
than she found it
whether by an improved poppy
a perfect poem
or a rescued soul
who never lacked appreciation
of earth's beauty
or failed to express it
who looked for the best in others
and gave the best she had
