The Desiderata remembered

One of my vivid childhood memories is sitting on a chair at a friend’s house and noticing on a passageway wall, a framed poster, with the poem Desiderata inscribed (the word is Latin for “things desired”). Around that time period, you could see the poem up on the walls of many houses, and I recall memorising it for some reason. It made a real impression.
