George Washington’s Birthday
February 22, 1732
Poetry by Mary T. Hoffman

George Washington was born on this day,

And there are many who say

He was a good and honest youth

Who readily confessed the truth:

“I cannot tell a lie,” said he.

“I’ve cut down the cherry tree.”

This legend is one that I was told

When I was in school and not very old.

I hope today’s children are taught to see

That honesty’s still the best policy.

Go on to Happy Mother’s Day?
