     The poem's long journey to the Top Ten really began in the 1950s, when a Baltimore pastor used it in a collection of material for the congregation of Old St. Paul's Church. The booklet's letterhead -- "Old St. Paul's Church, Baltimore, . 1692" -- led readers to believe that the poem itself had been discovered in that church in 1692. The verses began circulating outside of the church, eventually gaining so much in popularity that a copy was found on Adlai Stevenson's bedside table when the famous Democratic politician died in 1965, and Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry kept a copy in his office. They were also printed on posters that circulated in the counterculture, and Les Crane came across the poem on a poster before deciding to put it on record. (The word "desiderata" itself, incidentally, is Latin for "those things most needed or to be desired," as the translation was given on the LP's back cover.)

Les Crane's narrated version of Max Ehrmann's 1920's poem, "Desiderata" (Latin for 'Things to be desired'). The inspirational words help put life into perspective.
