Here you will find the Poem Little Kids of poet Ella Wheeler Wilcox
'Little kids,' you call us As we are at play. You were little children Just the other day. Now to-morrow nears us, Soon we too shall stand Men and women rulers Of the sea and land. 'Little kids' at play time: But at home or school Think about our future, Make us fit to rule. Guide us wisely onward- Teach us what is true. Though we are but kiddies We are watching you! Give us good examples! While we are at play, Often we are aping What you do and say.
