Pearls in Verse # 3
New National First Reader
 by  CHARLES J. BARNES, et al.
Suppose your task, my little man,

      Is very hard to get?

Will it make it any easier

       For you to sit and fret?

Then wouldn't it be wiser

      Than waiting like a dunce,

To go to work in earnest,

       And learn the thing at once?
