Grandmothlers are very nice folk:.
Th-v heat all the aint s in ereationl,
Thliey let a chap (h) what he likes,
And (lo1t worry about eilucation.
I am suiC I e:m't see it at. all.
What a poor fellow ever eoul d o
For apples. pen.1i(es :1n11 cakes
Without. a granimotiher or two.
And if he is had nov and thnfi,
And makes a ginat, racketing noise.
They only look over their spee
And say, "Ah, boys will be bys!
"&Life is Only short at 0e best.;
Let. the children he h:inpy to-day.''
T'hen they look for a whil oat the sky,
And the hills that are fat . far away.
Quite ofteni au twilight comes on
Graitlimoth,-rs sing hymns very low
To themlselves. as they rock by the fire.
Ahouit heaven. :u whore they >hall
And( then a hov, stopping to think,
Will find a hot tear inl his eye,
To know what, will emue :11 hist
For "raulmuothers have all 1.) die.
