God Gave To Me A Child In Part

Poem By Robert Louis Stevenson

Friendship is a many splendid thing
many happy hours it can bring
If the truth be told
but you have to take the first step & be bold. In the name of friendship kindly deeds are done
without any thought of return, there's none,
Friendship freely given each day
fills your heart with joy as you go along life's way. Wipe away a tear
take away all the pain & fear,
And you'll know as you go through each year
the reason why you're really meant to be here. If you hear a child cry
don't give an exasperated sigh,
Go & see what's wrong
help fill their hearts with a cheery song. Dreams you have plenty
but some people lives are lonely & empty,
Everyone is looking for something
cheer them up & let their hearts sing. And when the day's over and done
when you see the setting sun,
Just sit & think to yourself
at least I'm not left on life's shelf.

A Good Boy

I woke before the morning, I was happy all the day,
I never said an ugly word, but smiled and stuck to play.

And now at last the sun is going down behind the wood,

The Swing

How do you like to go up in a swing,
Up in the air so blue?
Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing
Ever a child can do!

Summer Sun

Great is the sun, and wide he goes
Through empty heaven with repose;
And in the blue and glowing days
More thick than rain he showers his rays.
