Nerd’s Rudolph Nose Stocking Stuffer

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.

For all of you Nerds lovers and nerds, there’s a new Christmas item out there made specially just for you.  It’s a big chewy nerds nose of our favorite reindeer, none other than the legendary Rudolph.

 

If you’re somehow not a fan of nerds, then it also makes for a great low-cost gift for a Secret Santa exchange.  The original big chewy nerds package includes a variety of flavors, including lemon, grape, strawberry and orange, however for Rudolph, everything is strawberry red to keep it in the holiday spirit.

 

The package is ideal to be hung on a stocking, so that it looks look our beloved Rudolph is peeking his head out of the top. It’s available in stores across America, as well as online at Target and at Candy Warehouse.
