Desiderata is the Latin for 'the desired things'. The poem was Written in 1927 by Max Erhmann. Initially it went largely unnoticed by the general public. However, from the 1960's onwards the poem became increasingly popular at graduation ceremonies. Its aspirational spirit became especially meaningful for many young people about to embark independently out into the world. It's a wonderful poem and deserves slow and repeated diligent reading.

I would recommend and purchase from Wall Buddy again. I purchased gifts from him and he shipped within 24 hrs. Quality of pictures was excellent. Items were packaged very well and received NO damage. I had to contend with International shipping and the Christmas holidays, but Wall Buddy went beyond the situation and fulfilled his obligation as a Seller. US vs Ireland - He can be trusted !!
