The Lions Creed

They achieve success, who lives
well,laughs often and loves much.
Who gains the respect of intelligent
people and the love  of little children
Who fills their niche and
accomplishes  their task.
Who leaves the world better than
they found it, whether by an
improved poppy, a perfect poem or a
rescued soul.
Who never lacks appreciation of
earth's beauty, nor fails to express it.
Who always sees the best in others
and gives the best they have.
Whose life is an inspiration and
whose memory is a benediction.

They are Lions!
