THE WORLD OF CHILDREN
The old always envy the world of children. They think our world is full of fun, but this is not always so for when a child breaks a glass; He is sure to get a scolding. When a child goes to bed late; He is sure to get a rebuke. When a child does not perform well in school; He is sure to get a dressing down. But when father breaks a glass; Mother only says well! And when father gets his spellings wrong; Mother only says it’s due to tiredness. So you see the world of children is not always full of fun. For we never have a good reason for our mistakes.
