- Ay, soon upon the stage of life,
- Sweet, happy children, you will rise,
- To mingle in its care and strife,
- Or early find the peaceful skies.
- Then be it yours, while you pursue
- The golden moments, quick to haste
- Some noble work of love to do,
- Nor suffer one bright hour to waste.
- School is out (1876); reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).
