To handle yourself, use your head; To handle others, use your heart.

                 With Rue my Heart is Laden

                   by A. E. Housman (1859-1936).

 Some Childhood Favorites

The Swing

by Robert Louis Stevenson

 
                         With rue my heart is laden 

                          For golden friends I had, 

                        For many a rose-lipt maiden 

                          And many a lightfoot lad. 

 
                        By brooks too broad for leaping 

                          The lightfoot boys are laid; 

                        The rose-lipt girls are sleeping 

                          In fields where roses fade.

 

The Song of Hiawatha

by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

 

How do you like to go up in a swing,

Up in the air so blue?

Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing

Ever a child can do!

 
Up in the air and over the wall,

Till I can see so wide,

Rivers and trees and cattle and all

Over the countryside -

 
Till I look down on the garden green,

Down on the roof so brown - 

Up in the air I go flying again,

Up in the air and down!
