Lesson 38.
A boy was sent to read one day,
But he was so much bent on play.
He would not try to mind his book,
A"^or try to read, nor in it look :
Sucli bçys as this must well be chid,
Or feel the rod as this boy did.
Then some kind boys, wlio sat the next,
To see him thus, at last were vext;
Come try, said they, and you will find,
'Tis not so hard, if you but mind
Your ABC, you soon may tell
Both how to read, and liow to spell ;
And when you have more hard a task,
We then will tell you what you ask.
Ay, ay, said this bad boy, 't is true;
But if I try to read, like you.
And say I know the A and B,
I must go on to C and D;
Xor may I stop when they are past,
I must go on to Z at last.
With this bad boy all ways they took.
To make him good and mind his book :
At last a fine hard rod they try.
The pain of this soon made him cry:
0 let this rod be ta'en from me,
I'll mind my book and good will be!
He kept his word, was kind and true,
And won the love of all he knew.
