Clement Clarke Moore Quotes

    Old Santeclaus

    But where I found the children naughty,
    In manners rude, in temper haughty,
    Thankless to parents, liars, swearers,
    Boxers, or cheats, or base tale-bearers,

    I left a long, black, birchen rod,
    Such as the dread command of God
    Directs a Parent's hand to use
    When virtue's path his sons refuse.
