The little victims play!
No sense have they of ills to come
Nor care beyond today.

R
Where ignorance is bliss -
Tis folly to be wise.
A
Far from the madding crowd's ignoble strife,
Their sober wishes never learn'd to stray;
Along the cool sequester'd vale of life
They kept the noiseless tenor of their way.
N
If the best man's faults were written on his forehead, he would draw his hat over his eyes.
K
Too poor for a bribe, and too proud to importune,
He had not the method of making a fortune.
