TWENTY TIMES A DAY. Twenty times a day, 'dear, Twenty times a day, ;Your mother thinks about you, At school, or else at playShe’s busy in the kitchen. Or she’s busy up the stairs ; But like a song her heart within. Her love for you is there. There's just a little thing, dear. She wishes you would do. I’ll whisper, 'tis a secret ; Now, mind, I’ll tell it you : Twenty times a day, dear, And more, I’ve heard you say, ‘■'Em coming in a minute,” ■When you should at once obey. At once, as soldiers instant, At the motion of command ; At once, as sailors seeing The captain’s warning hand. You could make the mother happy By minding in that way, Twenty times a day, dear, Twenty times a day.
—Margaret E. Sangsier
