I am not one of Buchans heroes nor am I of Shakespeares swains

I am not one with whom Faust once wept nor have I the unknown tomb

I am not one on whom the world awaits for either word or deed

I am not one whose favour kings would seek or lords my wisdom hear

I am but a man, unknown, unheard, unseen

I am eluded by fame, unknown by fortune, ignored by glory

I am one who each day meets each days demand

I am but a man, husband, father, friend, and teacher

I am nothing more and nothing less than who I am

I am one of Gods own sons

I am content


I am not of Buchan's Heroes
