INVITED GUESTS, by            
First Line: A crowd of troubles passed him by
Last Line: "we go — where we're expected."
Subject(s): Courage; Guests; Hope; Valor; Bravery; Visiting; Optimism

A CROWD of troubles passed him by,
As he with courage waited.
He said: "Where do you troubles fly,
When you are thus belated?"

"We go," they said, "to those who mope,
Who look on life dejected,
Who weakly say good-bye to hope:
We go — where we're expected."
