O, once in each mans life, at least, Good luck knocks at his door; And wit to seize the flitting guest Need never hunger more. But while the loitering idler waits Good luck beside his fire, The bold heart storms at fortunes gates, And conquers its desire. Lewis J. BatesGood Luck.
A farmer travelling with his load Picked up a horseshoe on the road, And nailed it fast to his barn door, That luck might down upon him pour; That every blessing known in life Might crown his homestead and his wife, And never any kind of harm Descend upon his growing farm. James T. FieldsThe Lucky Horseshoe.
