Home Kindness - A Picture Gift Book for the Children


 
UNWILLING PUSSY
 
"MEW, Mew,
Let me go,
Oh leave me alone!
Don't worry me so.
"I want to scamper
About the house;
I want to look
For a fine fat mouse.
"Let me go,
Or else I'll scratch."
"Run away, do ---
You old cross-patch."
 
 
LUCY AND DASH
 
WELL, well, here is something funny to see!
Lucy's dressed her dog up in a sash,
And is dancing around with him gay as can be,
And tells him he cuts quite a dash.
For Dash he is called, and she thinks it quite right
He should be just as gay as his name;
And he's always ready, both morning and night,
For and romp, frolic, or game.
She is kind to him, too, and---remember this, please---
Though she plays with him often, takes care not to
tease.


BE KIND TO THY FATHER
 
BE kind to they Father: for now thou art young,
Who loves thee more fondly than he?
Who caught the first accents that fell from thy tongue?
Who joined in thy babyish glee?
Be kind to thy Father: the shadow of care
Must fall on his life every day;
But if thou protect him with loves earnest prayer,
The darkness will vanish away!

 
BE KIND TO THY MOTHER
BE kind to they Mother: for tender her gaze
Whenever she looks upon thee!
Without her affection how dark would thy days
In their lonely forgetfulness be!
Be kind to thy Mother: in moments of pain
Whose touch is so tender and light?
And, oh! she has watched thee again and again.
And made thy life's spring-time so bright!

 
BE KIND TO THY SISTER
 
BE kind to thy Sister: not many may know
The depth of such generous love;
The wealth of the ocean lies fathoms below
The surface that sparkles above.
Her kindness has brought to thee many sweet hours,
And blessings thy pathway to crown;
And thy true love will weave her a garland of flowers
More precious than wealth or renown.
 

BE KIND TO THY BROTHER

BE kind to thy Brother: his heart will have dearth
If the smile of thy love be withdrawn;
The flowers of feeling will fade at their birth,
If the dew of affection be gone.

Be kind to thy Brother: wherever you are,
The love of a true heart will be
An ornament, purer and richer by far
Than pearls from the depths of the sea.
