I cite her first Stanza here: 'Don't drive me away, But hear what I say: Bad men want the gold; They will steal it to-night, And you must take flight; So be quiet and busy and bold.' It be Little Women or this wonderful poem: Don't drive me away! ,

Part 3- Part 3- - Then they followed Buzz to a quiet nook in the wood; and there were the eagle and his mate waiting to fly away with them so fast and so far that no one could follow. Rosy and the bag of gold were put on the mother eagle; Tom sat astride the king bird; and away they flew to a great city, where the little girl and her father lived happily together all their lives. [from Rosy's Journey]

Part 2- -But the fly sang again, - Slip away with me, And you will see What a wise little thing am I; For the road I show No man can know, Since it's up in the pathless sky. [from Rosy's Journey]

Part 2- - I was afraid some one would take my lump away. I'll pack up at once, and we will creep off while the men are busy at work; though I'm afraid we can't go fast enough to be safe, if they miss us and come after, said Tom, bundling his gold into a bag and looking very sober; for some of the miners were wild fellows, and might kill him for the sake of that great lump.

Part of a short story by Alcott called Rosy's Journey- - She was just going to say something very sweet to comfort him, when a fly lit on her arm and buzzed very loud, - Don't drive me away, But hear what I say: Bad men want the gold; They will steal it to-night, And you must take flight; So be quiet and busy and bold.

As a school girl, the books of Louisa May Alcott were my favourites. Her style of writing simple yet most attractive. She has inspired a lot of young minds.
