Baron Von Lind, the artist of this illustration, served many years in the U.S. Military. His brother was killed on a mission over Germany in 1945 while serving in Italy with the 15th Air Force. After leaving the military, he created wonderful pin-up art images. He also worked at Paramount Studios where he painted such stars as Yul Brynner, Sophia Loren, Peter O'Toole and Clint Eastwood to name a few. In 1982, he was approached by the White House to do a painting of then President Ronald Reagan. The painting now hangs in the Reagan Museum in Simi Valley, California.

With the lilt of Irish laughter
Every day and in every way
Now forever and ever after."
