Come Up Higher

By LinnieJane Burks

Don't be a hypochrondriac -
     A croaker! Self-tormentor,
This world will not improve a bit
     From having had you as a renter!

When we move on to greener fields,
     From this old stomping ground -
We oughta want to leave things here
     Lots better than we found.

Just say goodbye to mopishness
     Dejection and all blues!
And come up higher where our Lord
     Paints life with wonderful hues!

©Jan 22, 1947 Linnie Jane Burks
