Last Line: From happy morn till drowsy eve.
Subject(s): Children; Mothers & Sons; Childhood


I know a lad, a sailor free,
Whose good ship drifts right merrily
To seek a vast and distant land,
With every fate at his command.

I know a lad, a warrior bold,
Who conquers every foe foretold;
Like leaves beneath the whirlwind's sway,
The baffled enemy flee away.

I know a lad, a builder grand,
Who shapes fine castles out of sand,
With moats and bridges, turrets high,
And gardens that delight the eye.

All these pursuits and many more
Employ my busy lad of four,
Who lives in realms of make-believe
From happy morn till drowsy eve.
