    The Toys

    BY COVENTRY PATMORE


    My little Son, who look'd from thoughtful eyes


    And moved and spoke in quiet grown-up wise,

    Having my law the seventh time disobey'd,

    I struck him, and dismiss'd

    With hard words and unkiss'd,

    His Mother, who was patient, being dead.

    Then, fearing lest his grief should hinder sleep,

    I visited his bed,

    But found him slumbering deep,

    With darken'd eyelids, and their lashes yet

    From his late sobbing wet.

    And I, with moan,

    Kissing away his tears, left others of my own;

    For, on a table drawn beside his head,

    He had put, within his reach,

    A box of counters and a red-vein'd stone,

    A piece of glass abraded by the beach

    And six or seven shells,

    A bottle with bluebells

    And two French copper coins, ranged there with careful art,

    To comfort his sad heart.

    So when that night I pray'd

    To God, I wept, and said:

    Ah, when at last we lie with tranced breath,

    Not vexing Thee in death,

    And Thou rememberest of what toys

    We made our joys,

    How weakly understood

    Thy great commanded good,

    Then, fatherly not less

    Than I whom Thou hast moulded from the clay,

    Thou'lt leave Thy wrath, and say,

    "I will be sorry for their childishness."

    Unfortunately, quite a lot of us expect our kids to behave wisely all the time. We hurt their feelings many a time. We think that it is our due right to give a spank or two to them as or when we want. We forget that they are just KIDS! Beautiful poem​
