1201. A Little Boy’s Vain Regret
 
By Edith Matilda Thomas
 
 
HE was six years old, just six that day,
And I saw he had something important to say
As he held in his hand a broken toy.
He looked in my face for an instant, and then
He said, with a sigh, and a downcast eye,        5
“If I could live my life over again,
I think I could be a better boy!”
