A Good Boy

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

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,


And I am very happy, for I know that I've been good.


My bed is waiting cool and fresh, with linen smooth and fair,


And I must be off to sleepsin-by, and not forget my prayer.


I know that, till to-morrow I shall see the sun arise,


No ugly dream shall fright my mind, no ugly sight my eyes.


But slumber hold me tightly till I waken in the dawn,


And hear the thrushes singing in the lilacs round the lawn.
