 Elsie`s Poetry



They are the salt of the earth
And they don`t realize their worth,
They never complain or grumble
In fact they are quite humble.

They have worked hard all their life
And have known a lot of strife
But they said it made them strong
And I don`t think they are wrong.

They can teach a thing or two
About things we never knew
I have often with them sat
And just listened to them chat.

They amazed me when they talked
Many a path they have walked
With twists and turns and often rough
But they are made of strong stuff.

I take my hat off to them
They are each a little gem
I love them all I must say
Each special in their own way.

These are people I care for
It`s not just a job it`s more
Better than any friend could be
They`re like family to me.
