People are of two kinds, and he 
Was the kind I'd like to be. 
Some preach their virtues, and a few 
Express their lives by what they do; 
That sort was he.  No flowery phrase 
Or glibly spoken word of praise 
Won friends for him.  He wasn't cheap 
Or shallow, but his course ran deep, 
And it was pure.  You know the kind. 
Not many in life you find 
Whose deeds outrun their words so far 
That more than what they seem, they are.
