If I mistake not, raised a son,
Gay, rattle-brained and wild-
A man of mark, who fafn would pass
For lord of sea and" land,
May have the training of an ass,
And bring him up full grand;
May give him all the wealth of lore-
Of college and of school,
Yet after all make him no mere-
Than just a decent fool.

I'd been myself a saint.
