Making the House a Home By: Edgar A. First Page: Making the house a home. We have been building a home for the last fifteen years, but it begins to look now as though it will not be finished for many years to come. This is not because the contractors are slow, or the materials scarce, or because we keep changing our minds. Rather it is because it takes years to build a home, whereas a house can be builded in a few months. Mother and I started this home building job on June 28th, 1906.

The Passing Throng (1923).

Edgar Guest is depicted on the badge worn by the crew of Count Olaf's submarine Carmelita in The Grim Grotto, the eleventh book in Lemony Snicket's Series of Unfortunate Events. In the book Guest is mocked as a "writer of limited skill, who wrote awkward, tedious poetry on hopelessly sentimental topics" (The Grim Grotto (2004) p. 281)  . Making The House A Home (1922). The Passing Throng (1923). by Edgar Albert Guest. There’s a heap of pent-up goodness in the yellow bantam corn, And I sort o’ like to linger round a berry patch at morn; Oh, the Lord has set our table. I have sat near a stove in a queer. Little woman, hourly sitting, Something for a soldier knitting, What in fancy can you see? Many pictures come to me Through the stitch that now you’re. By Edgar A. (Edgar Albert) Guest.

Reviews about Making the House a Home (7):
Hinewen
Young marrieds rent a flat and set up housekeeping. Children are born, adopted, and nursed. The family moves from house to house, and more importantly from home to home.
This brief essay, which frames the poem that gave rise to the line "It takes a heap of living to make a house a home" is restrained but full of rich feeling. A simple story, honestly told, with no cheap sentiment and no authorly showing off. Worth a quiet contemplative moment.
Fato
The poem, of course, was a favorite as are all of Edgar Guest's works, but this also contained his story of why the house became a home. It included the joys and tragedies that befall all on their journey through life. Made me aware that it is important to keep a positive attitude and know that each new day is what gets you to HERE. Worth reading. Short read.

I was referred to this poet by a Lady I highly respect and after reading this book, I can understand her love for Mr. Guests writings and have since ordered and read more of his stories and poems. He has a gentle way of expressing the simple things of life and this is well worth the read.
Abandoned Electrical
I expected a book poetry. Instead, I found a frank description of the joys and sorrows of him as a new husband and father through the death of two children. A perspective on life a few generations ago that reminds us what really matters.
Malien
Despite some very difficult circumstances, this was a very positive autobiography. Through some of the hardest tests and trials, Edgar Guest was still able to find the good and the positive things in his life and the life of his family. I enjoyed reading this so much, that immediately after reading it the first time, I had to go back and re-read it. It left me with such a good feeling that it made my day and I highly recommended it to both of my adult children. I read a lot and this is one of my top reads. It certainly gives one an insight into the attitude and life of The People's Poet, Edgar A. Guest.
Knights from Bernin
This is a short story of a writer and his young family that build a home through faith, hope, and love.
fabscf
An insightful account of a family dealing with the intense pain of losing two children. Steady ability to deal with the problems of life.
Just not what I'd expected from the Edgar A. Guest poetry I used to read.
