The Cut

Written by: Ann Taylor | Biography
 | Quotes (2) |
 Well, what's the matter? there's a face
What ! has it cut a vein?
And is it quite a shocking place?
Come, let us look again.
I see it bleeds, but never mind That tiny little drop; I don't believe you'll ever find That crying makes it stop.
'Tis sad indeed to cry at pain, For any but a baby; If that should chance to cut a vein, We should not wonder, may be.
But such a man as you should try To bear a little sorrow: So run along, and wipe your eye, 'Twill all be well to-morrow.
