MY MOTHER'S SWEET KISS Sarah Josepha Hale









MY MOTHER'S SWEET KISS
Sarah Josepha Hale


I have learned my lesson,

And mother said 
She would give me a kiss

When I went to bed 
I do not want sugar-plums,

Candy and cake, 
They make my mind dull,

And my head to ache.

My mother's sweet kiss 
Is my best reward 
To gain her smile

I will study hard 
And when I am good,

She has always said 
She would give me a kiss
When I went to bed.
