Young marrieds rent a flat and set up housekeeping. Children are born, adopted, and nursed. The family moves from house to house, and more importantly from home to home.
This brief essay, which frames the poem that gave rise to the line "It takes a heap of living to make a house a home" is restrained but full of rich feeling. A simple story, honestly told, with no cheap sentiment and no authorly showing off. Worth a quiet contemplative moment.

The poem, of course, was a favorite as are all of Edgar Guest's works, but this also contained his story of why the house became a home. It included the joys and tragedies that befall all on their journey through life. Made me aware that it is important to keep a positive attitude and know that each new day is what gets you to HERE. Worth reading. Short read.

I expected a book poetry. Instead, I found a frank description of the joys and sorrows of him as a new husband and father through the death of two children. A perspective on life a few generations ago that reminds us what really matters.
