Edgar A. Guest might be considered the James Whitcomb Riley of his generation. Riley was called the “Children’s Poet” and Guest was known as the “Poet of the People.” Guest once said, “I do the same kind of jingles that Riley used to do. All he tried to be was sincere.” The two poets shared the same subject matter: optimism, nostalgia for an earlier time, and praise for the ordinary person and little things in life. “Just Folks” was the title of Guest’s daily newspaper poem, and the title was fitting. Many of his over 11,000 poems are still read and quoted today. One of the most famous is “It Couldn’t Be Done” which concludes, “There are thousands to tell you that it can not be done, there are thousands to prophesy failure, there are thousands to point out to you, one by one, the dangers that wait to assail you, but just buckle it in with a bit of a grin, just take off your coat and go to it, just start to sing as you tackle the thing that couldn’t be done and you’ll do it.”
