As long as I live
I shall always be
My Self—and no other,
Just me.
Like a tree.
Willow, elder,
Aspen, thorn,
Or cypress forlorn.
Like a flower,
For its hour—
Primrose, or pink,
Or a violet—
Sunned by the sun,
And with dewdrops wet.
Always just me.
~ Walter de la Mare, Me

“All of my family loves Dr. Burkhart. I have several children and have been to many dermatologists. He is the best and all my kids go to him now. I wish I was able to be his patient too, but he only sees children.”
