C is CHARLES CAREFUL, whom none can surpass.
So clever, he’s now at the head of our class ;
So dutiful, kind, and obliging beside,
The joy of his friends, of his parents the pride ;
His worth to proclaim, and his person to deck,
A Medal of Merit he wears at his neck.
D is DO-LITTLE, who scarce knows a letter,
Yet willing to learn, he soon hopes to Do better ;
Intent on his lesson he sits by himself,
And heeds no impertinent mischievous elf;
We love the fine fellow, and, eager to tell
Our friendly affection, we call him Do-well.
