THE LITTLE GENTLEMAN. I knew him for a gentleman By signs that never fail; His coat wafe rough and rather worn, His cheeks were thin and pale; A lad who had his way to make With little time for play; I knew him for a gentleman By certain signs to-day. He met his mother on the street, Off came his little cap; My door was shut, h3 waited there Until I heard his rap. He took the bundl-e from my hand, And when I dropped the pen, He sprang to pick it up for me, This gentleman of ten. He does not push or crowd along, His voice is gently pitched: He does not fling his books about As if he was bewitched. He stands aside to let you pass, He always shuts the door He runs on errands willingly— To forge, or mill, or store. He thinks of you before himself, He serves you if he can, For in whatever company The manners make the man. At ten or forty, 'tis the same, His manners toll the tale, And I discern the gentleman By signs that never fail.
