THE PHILATELIST'S PSALM
Stamp collecting is my hobby, I shall not be bored.
It maketh me to do research on far places.
It causeth me to correspond with odd people.
It keepeth me alert.
It leadeth me into areas of understanding
for curiosity's sake.
Yea, though I live through a Winter of inclement weather,
will fear no boredom, for my stamps are with me.
They provideth me a means of escaping from the tensions of my responsibilities.
They filleth my house with books.
My cash runneth lower.
Surely interest and knowledge shall follow
me all the days of my life.
And I will be listed in the ranks of the Philatelists forever.
