ONE!TWO!THREE!

AND A LOUD CRY IS HEARD.

THERE IS THE NEW GUEST

IGNORANT WITH INNOCENCE,

TRYING TO RESIST THIS WORLD

WITH HIS TINY HANDS AND LEGS.

A FEW MOMENTS LATER

HE IS SURROUNDED BY BLISS;

BUT A FEW YEARS LATER

HE IS FILLED WITH GLOOM

CAUSE HE WAS CAUGHT RED-HANDED

STEALING A NECKLACE.

THE GLOOM OF LOSING HIS PRIDE

MADE HIM LOOK DOWN WITH SHAME.

BUT THAT DID'NT STOP HIM

FROM LEARNING EACH AND EVERY DAY

WHAT TO BE DONE

AND WHAT NOT TO BE DONE.

HE STOPPED SAYING LIES

WAS VERY KIND TO ALL;

HE DESTROYED HIS JEALOUSY

GREED AS WELL AS ANGER

AND ALL OTHER VICES

THAT CAME HIS WAY.

FAME SOON COVERED HIM

BUT HE STILL LOOKED DOWN

NOT WITH SHAME ;

BUT SUBDUING HIS PRIDE,

MANY YEARS ROLLED BY

AND HE LEFT AS A GUEST.
