A FEW RULES FOR BEGINNERS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Babies must not eat the coal
Last Line: Who will comfort them with kisses.
Alternate Author Name(s): Murry, John Middleton, Mrs.; Beauchamp, Kathleen


Babies must not eat the coal
And they must not make grimaces,
Nor in party dresses roll
And must never black their faces.

They must learn that pointing's rude,
They must sit quite still at table,
And must always eat the food
Put before them -- if they're able.

If they fall, they must not cry,
Though it's known how painful this is;
No -- there's always Mother by
Who will comfort them with kisses.
