Dear Friends by Edwin Arlington Robinson

Dear friends, reproach me not for what I do,

Nor counsel me, nor pity me; nor say

That I am wearing half my life away

For bubble-work that only fools pursue.

And if my bubbles be too small for you,

Blow bigger then your own: the games we play

To fill the frittered minutes of a day,

Good glasses are to read the spirit through.

And whoso reads may get him some shrewd skill;

And some unprofitable scorn resign,

To praise the very thing that he deplores;

So, friends (dear friends), remember, if you will,

The shame I win for singing is all mine,

The gold I miss for dreaming is all yours.

The Good Moolly Cow by Eliza Lee Follen

Come! supper is ready;

Come! boys and girls, now,

For here is fresh milk

From the good moolly cow.

Have done with your fife,

And your row de dow dow,

And taste this sweet milk

From the good moolly cow.

When children are hungry,

O, who can tell how

They love the fresh milk

From the good moolly cow!

So, when you meet moolly,

Just say, with a bow,

“Thank you for your milk,

Mrs. Good Moolly Cow.”
