A Poem Published On The Back Of The Mass Program, Which Nathan Kept and Often Read
There are little eyes upon you
And they’re watching night and day
There are little ears that quickly
take in every word you say;
There are little hands all eager
To do anything you do;
There’s a little boy who’s dreaming
Of the day he’ll be like you.
You’re the little fellow’s idol;
You’re the wisest of the wise.
In his little mind about you
No suspicions ever rise.
He believes in you devoutly,
Holds that all you say and do
He will say and do in your way
When he’s a grown-up like you.
There’s a wide-eyed little fellow
Who believes you’re always right,
And his ears are always open
As he watches day and night.
You are setting an example
Every day in all you do
For the little boy who’s waiting
To grow up to be like you.
