Buzza Motto – House by the Side of the Road – From “Dreams in Homespun” 1897 Lathrop, Lee and Shepard Co.
Let me live in a house by the side of the road.
Where the race of men go by,
The men who are bad as I.
I would not sit in the scorner’s seat Or hurl the cynic’s ban;
Let me live in a house by the side of the road,
And be a friend to man.
By Sam Walter Foss, known for his inspirational poem.
Printed under the poem is “Created by The Buzza Company Minneapolis U.S.A. by arrangement with Lothrop, Lee and Shepard Co. From “Dreams in Homespun” Copyrighted 1897 Lothrop, Lee and Shepard Co.
The motto is hand painted.Only the black lines are printed. Note: the black ink reflects differently from the painted areas. It appears to be thicker, almost touching the glass, whereas the colorful watercolor seems to be absorbed by the paper.
HOUSE BY THE SIDE OF THE ROAD is a handsome motto and framed in its original frame, glass and backing paper. The frame is especially nice with the gold and green panel.
