Louis Untermeyer
It takes a heap oí children to make a home thatís true,
And home can be a palace grand, or just a plain, old shoe;
But if it has a mother dear, and a good old dad or two,
Why, thatís the sort of good old home for good old me and you.
Untermeyer quotes
The poet's dilemma..to create order in the midst of disorder
Untermeyer
Laughter shall drown the raucous shout;
And, though these sheltíring walls are thin,
May they be strong to keep hate out
And hold love in.




Untermeyer Louis quotes
To reveal man in relation to the universe the poet must show himself not only concerned with the immensities but with the trivialities of daily life, with a sense of the past continually interupting the present.
