    Lord, thy most pointed pleasure take
    And stab my spirit broad awake;
    Or, Lord, if too obdurate I,
    Choose thou, before that spirit die,
    A piercing pain, a killing sin,
    And to my dead heart run them in!
    —Robert Louis Stevenson (1850–1894)

    Trusty, dusky, vivid, true,
    With eyes of gold and bramble-dew,
    Steel-true and blade-straight
    The great artificer
    Made my mate.

    A child should always say what’s true
    And speak when he is spoken to,
    And behave mannerly at table;
    At least as far as he is able.
