A bunch of golden keys is mine,
To make each day with gladness shine.
Good-morning! that’s the golden key
That unlocks every day for me.
When evening comes, “Good-night!” I say,
And close the door of each glad day.
When at the table, “If you please!”
I take from off my bunch of keys.
When friends give anything to me,
I use a little “Thank you!” key.
Excuse me! beg your pardon! too,
When by mistake some harm I do.
Or if unkindly harm I’ve given,
“Forgive me! I shall be forgiven.
On a golden ring these keys I’ll bind,
This is its motto: Be ye kind!”
