  Good And Bad Children

Children, you are very little,
And your bones are very brittle;
If you would grow great and stately,
You must try to walk sedately. 

You must still be bright and quiet,
And content with simple diet;
And remain, through all bewild’ring,
Innocent and honest children.

Happy play in grassy places –
That was how, in ancient ages,
Children grew to kings and sages. 

But the unkind and the unruly,
And the sort who eat unduly,
They must never hope for glory –
Theirs is quite a different story!

All grow up as geese and gabies,
Hated, as their age increases,
By their nephews and their nieces.
