A Heap o' Livin' - 1916 by Edgar Guest!
A few months ago, while shopping a thrift store near Detroit, I was excited to find this historical framed poem by Edgar Guest.
Edgar Guest worked for the Detroit Free Press for over 40 years. He wrote more than 11,000 poems which were syndicated in some 300 newspapers and collected in more than 20 books, including this one A Heap o' Livin' in 1916.
Edgar Guest was made Poet Laureate of Michigan, the only poet to have been awarded the title.
