Looking Back

by Edgar A. Guest

I might have been rich if I'd wanted the gold
instead of the friendships I've made.
I might have had fame if I'd sought for renown
in the hours when I purposely played.
Now I'm standing to-day on the far edge of life,
and I'm just looking backward to see
What I've done with the years and the days that were mine,
and all that has happened to me.

I haven't built much of a fortune to leave
to those who shall carry my name,
And nothing I've done shall entitle me now
to a place on the tablets of fame.
But I've loved the great sky and its spaces of blue;
I've lived with the birds and the trees;
I've turned from the splendor of silver and gold
to share in such pleasures as these.

I've given my time to the children who came;
together we've romped and we've played,
And I wouldn't exchange the glad hours spent
with them for the money that I might have made.
I chose to be known and be loved by the few,
and was deaf to the plaudits of men;
And I'd make the same choice should the chance
come to me to live my life over again.

I've lived with my friends and I've shared in their joys,
known sorrow with all of its tears;
I have harvested much from my acres of life,
though some say I've squandered my years.
For much that is fine has been mine to enjoy,
and I think I have lived to my best,
And I have no regret, as I'm nearing the end,
for the gold that I might have possessed.

Dunkin’ is deliverin’ the goods! Exciting news in the world of the coffee chain! Dunkin’ Donuts has debuted its Matcha Topped Donut nationwide on February 24 at participating restaurants. Per a company press release, the new donut flavor is made up of Dunkin’s signature Glazed Donut, topped with Matcha powder for vegetal flavor notes and a hit of bold green color. As if that wasn’t enough to get ourselves off our phones and into the closest Dunkin’ store, they have also unveiled a Blueberry Matcha Latte beverage. We’re swooning over here. Made with a sweetened Matcha green tea powder blend with blueberry flavor and your choice of milk, available hot, iced, or frozen. Starting February 24 through March 23, DD Perks members can earn points toward a free beverage reward with double points (so 10 points per dollar as opposed to the typical five) on the purchase of any drinks in the Matcha Latte collection, which also includes the original Matcha Latte.

 

“Expanding our line of specialty drinks with Matcha Lattes last year created a whole new way to stay energized and refreshed at Dunkin’,” said Jill Nelson, Vice President, Marketing & Culinary at Dunkin’ in the same media statement. “This year, we’re featuring one of our most popular drink combinations alongside our new Matcha Topped Donut to give guests even more options for enjoying this bright and delicious flavor in a uniquely Dunkin’ way.”

And one more bit of happy news! Dunkin’ spring menu includes every millennial’s favorite food: avocado toast! Described as featuring a “spread made with four simple ingredients: avocado, sea salt, black pepper, and lemon juice,” served edge-to-edge atop “Dunkin’s authentic toasted Sourdough Bread, baked from a recipe created especially by Dunkin’ using a true Sourdough starter for a tangy twist.” The whole thing is then topped off with Everything Bagel Seasoning and served “in a special portable box.”

 

“Dunkin’s new Avocado Toast is the definition of quality delivered at the speed of Dunkin’,” stated Jill Nelson, the chain’s vice president of marketing and culinary. “We’ve taken a popular brunch staple and made it accessible for anyone looking for something easy and delicious to eat on-the-go. With simple ingredients at an affordable price, Dunkin’s Avocado Toast is the latest feel good addition to our evolving menu.”
