Who is a Lion?

He has achieved success who has lived well,
Laughed often, and loved much;
Who has gained the respect of intelligent men
And the love of little children;
Who has filled his niche and accomplished his task;
Who has left the world a better than he found it,
Whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or
A rescued soul;
Who has never lacked appreciation of earth’s beauty, or
Failed to express it;
Who has always looked for the best in others, and
Given the best he has;
Whose life is an inspiration;
Whose memory a benediction-
He is a Lion!
