Edgar Albert Guest英文简介
Edgar Albert Guest (August 20, 1881, Birmingham, England – August 5, 1959, Detroit, Michigan) (aka Eddie Guest) was a prolific English-born American poet who was popular in the first half of the 20th century and became known as the People's Poet.

In 1891, Guest came with his family to the United States from England. After he began at the Detroit Free Press as a copy boy and then a reporter, his first poem appeared December 11, 1898. He became a naturalized citizen in 1902. For 40 years, Guest was widely read throughout North America, and his sentimental, optimistic poems were in the same vein as the light verse of Nick Kenny, who wrote syndicated columns during the same decades.

From his first published work in the Detroit Free Press until his death in 1959, Guest penned some 11,000 poems which were syndicated in some 300 newspapers and collected in more than 20 books, including A Heap o' Livin' (1916) and Just Folks (1917). Guest was made Poet Laureate of Michigan, the only poet to have been awarded the title.

His popularity led to a weekly Detroit radio show which he hosted from 1931 until 1942, followed by a 1951 NBC television series, A Guest in Your Home.

When Guest died in 1959, he was buried in Detroit's Woodlawn Cemetery.


Be a friend
Be a friend. You don't need money;

成为真正的朋友,无需被金钱左右。

Just a disposition sunny;

只需亦如阳光般灿烂的心胸。

Just the wish to help another,

还有无私助人的纯洁意想,

Get along some way or other;

彼此间的内心能够无碍交融。

Just a kindly hand extended

在需要时做个温柔宽厚的臂膀

Out to one who's unbefriended;

伸向还在孤寂中游荡的心房

Just the will to give or lend,

内心升腾起不求回报的给予的祈望

This will make you someone's friend.

这才是知己的应有模样
