If you want a golden rule that will fit everybody, this is it: Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful. ~ William Morris

A Poem for Mother's Day

A Little Boy's Bedtime
by Helen Maring
Woman's World, February 1935

"Look, Mother! Look at me
Stand on my head!"
(Cuddle down, sonny,
It's time for your bed.)
"But, mother, just watch;
And a summersault too!"
(Postponing the moments 
As little boys do.)

Precious, so precious
With hair all awry,
And the sand from the sandman
Dropped into each eye.
(A kiss for your mother....
Your prayers, dear....Sleep

Oh, Father, protect him
Beyond this still night.
