Whole Duty of Children


Whole Duty of Children
by Robert Louis Stevenson

A child should always say what's true,
And speak when he is spoken to,
And behave mannerly at table;
At least as far as he is able.

The children at the table next to me were adorable. They were somewhat dwarfed by the largeness of the table and chairs, but appeared to have a great time going out to eat together. Never fear, their mom was near, but had stepped off to look at something else for a moment. Aren't they cute little buttons?
