Good Morning, Class of '64
Guardian Angel - Heiliger Schutzengel
"The guardian angels of life sometimes 
fly so high as to be beyond our sight, but 
they are always looking down upon us."
Jean Paul Richter
"Guardian angels are perhaps 
the most popular kind,
 probably because we all know
 how fragile life can be.
We desperately need protection
 from unexpected circumstances
 and unseen dangers.
Just the thought of good 
angels hovering around
us gives people a feeling of safety!
Gary Kinnaman
Children often have imaginary playmates.
I suspect that half of them are really
their guardian angels."
Eileen Elias Freeman
"When I was a child I thought I saw an angel.
It had wings and kind of looked like my sister.
I opened the door so some light could come 
into the room, and it sort of faded away.
My mother said it was probably 
my guardian angel." 
 Denzel Washington
Outside the open window
The morning air is all 
awash with angels.
Richard Purdy Wilbur

The Angel's Message - George Hillyard Swinstead
An Angel on My Shoulder
(An Old-World Ballad)
Along the edge of the world at night
in the light of the Lord’s candle
somebody is wandering alone
with an angel on his shoulder.

He’s walking towards nowhere, to non-return,
he’s walking lazily like a child,
and the gray pendulum of life
prods him from behind,

so he won’t roam at night
in the light of the Lord’s candle,
so he won’t ramble around
with an angel on his shoulder.

A whirling wind blows,
a pestilential Herod howls,
the pendulum is striking stronger,
the barely alive angel is moaning.

But he keeps going on and on,
though the candle’s no longer breathing,
just his lips quiver: 

Angel, don’t fall from my shoulder.

Guardian Angel - Heiliger Schutzengel
Has it ever happened that you escaped 
some kind of calamity or bad outcome 
and afterward tried to understand but 
couldn't explain your near miss?
Perhaps some hidden sense inside you 
warned of coming disaster, and you heeded
 the prompt unaware of it's nature.
 Perhaps there be angels guarding you. 
Perhaps there be angels among us.

When we worship God, 
our angels add their prayers 
and turn our single voices 
into hundred-part harmony.

Got an angel on my shoulder
Got a penny in my pocket
And I found a four leaf clover
And I put it in my locket
Wished on all the stars above me
And I caught the nearest rainbow
Gonna find someone to love me
Gonna find someone to love

Well I tossed a lot of nickels in the wishing well
And saved the fortunes that the fortune cookies tell
I got a lucky penny and a mustard seed
But a warm and tender love is all I need

And I want a love that lingers
And a strong one through and through
So I´m gonna cross my fingers
That I´ll find a boy who loves me true
And I´m gonna love him too

The golden moments in the stream of life 
rush past us and we see nothing but sand; 
the angels come to visit us, and we only 
know them when they are gone.
George Elliot

  It is not known precisely where angels dwell — 
whether in the air, the void, or the planets. 
It has not been God's pleasure that we 
should be informed of their abode. 

All God's angels come to us disguised.
James Russell Lowell

a bit o' cheer, 
and a guardian angel always near."
