A Life Lesson by James Whitcomb Riley (7th October 1849 – 22nd July, 1916)

There! little girl; don’t cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea–set blue,
And your play–house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
But childish troubles will soon pass by. –
There! little girl; don’t cry!

There! little girl; don’t cry!
They have broken your slate, I know;
And the glad, wild ways
Of your schoolgirl days
Are things of the long ago;
But life and love will soon come by. –
There! little girl; don’t cry!

There! little girl; don’t cry!
They have broken your heart I know;
And the rainbow gleams
Of your youthful dreams
Are things of the long ago;
But Heaven holds all for which you sigh. –
There! little girl; don’t cry!
