Poems Every Child Should Know by  Mary E. Burt

A Happy Life

How happy is he born and taught

That serveth not another's will;

Whose armour is his honest thought,

And simple truth his utmost skill!


Whose passions not his master's are,

Whose soul is still prepared for death,

Not tied unto the world with care

Of public fame, or private breath.


Sir Henry Wotton.
