Gateway to the Classics: More Mother Stories by Maud Lindsay
More Mother Stories by  Maud Lindsay

Motto for the Mother

Early help the child to know

That as, through curtained windowpane,

The sunlight cannot enter in,

So his soul's joy may darkened be

By careless deed or childish sin.

But when the curtain's drawn aside,

The room again is filled with light,

So with God's light the soul will shine

Whene'er the wrong is set aright.
