A New Leaf

He came to my desk with quivering lips; the lesson was done
"Have you a new leaf for me, dear teacher? I have spoiled this one!"
I took his leaf all spoiled and blotted, and gave him a new one, all unspotted.
Then into his tired heart I smiled; "Do better now my child!"

I went to the throne with trembling heart; the day was done
"Have you a new day for me, dear Master? Ihave spoiled this one!"
He took my day, all soiled and blotted, and gave me a new one, all unspotted;
then into my tired heart He smiled; "Do better now my child!"

~I got this poem from my Aunt Rita~
