You Tell on Yourself



You tell on yourself by the friends you seek,
By the very manner in which you speak,
By the way you employ your leisure time,
By the use you make of dollar and dime.

You tell what you are by the things you wear,
By the spirit in which you burdens bear,
By the kind of things at which you laugh,
By the records you play on the phonograph.

You tell what you are by the way you walk,
By the things of which you delight to talk,
By the manner in which you bear defeat,
By so simple a thing as how you eat.

By the books you choose from the well-filled shelf:
In these ways and more, you tell on yourself.

This is great! May I post it on my blog? I will say that I got it from your blog ;)

Sure, I don't mind.

May I post it as well? I will also give your blog credit. Are you the original author? And if not, would you mind sharing the authors name? I love your site, by the way. I have a website and blog much the same (the website more than the blog.) Blessings to you!
