  1. Come, sister dear,
    I'll read you here
    The story of a Dollie,
    Who never strayed
    Nor disobeyed
    Good rules, by guilt or folly.

    She never cried,
    When put aside,
    In bed or in the cradle ;
    When taken up,
    She broke no cup,
    Nor dropped a spoon or ladle.

    She never told
    A fib, nor rolled
    Her pretty lip in anger ;
    Nor, if displeased.
    Felt cross, and teased,
    Or filled the house with clangor.

    She never soiled
    Her dress, or spoiled
    Her shoes, their worth abusing ;
    Nor did she tear
    Her book, or wear
    Through leaves she was perusing.

    She did not pass
    Before the glass
    Too often, or too vainly ;
    As if her worth
    Should be set forth
    In outward beauty mainly.

    The whole, in short,
    Of Dollie's fort,
    Was trust in those to train her
    Who better knew
    Than she could do,
    Wherein she'd be a gainer.

    A brother young
    Was found among
    Miss Dollie's near relations,
    Who could, like her,
    Some good infer
    From slightest intimations.

    But both were small ;.
    So this is all
    Their story gives at present :
    It lets us see,
    How each could be
    In aspect always pleasant.
