Poem by Christian Milne


Written on My Little Girls


PREFER this Book to idle toys,
Or romps with naughty girls and boys--
Let Learning be thy chief delight,
'Twill find thee work from morn to night;
And ne'er be backward to pursue
The path it points out to thy view:
Attend thy book, and don't be naught;
Strive to retain, whate'er thou'rt taught.
