Best Answer

"Mary Jean Iron" is the incorrect spelling for Mary Jean Irion, an author of essays and poetry. The incorrect spelling is often used as attribution for the well-loved quote that begins, "Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are."

That quote is not a poem, it is a paragraph from the essay, "Let Me Hold You While I May", in the book, "Yes, World: A Mosaic of Meditation", published in 1970 by Baron Publishing. (Page 53). It has also been printed in McCall's magazine.

Sadly, the misspelling occurs on hundreds--perhaps thousands--of websites. Those who see the quote are encouraged to ask that the misspelling be corrected to, Mary Jean Irion, so she can receive appropriate acknowledgement.
