The Chimney Sweeper

[名人诗歌]      来源:
 When my mother died I was very young,

    And my father sold me while yet my tongue

    Could scarcely cry `'weep! 'weep! 'weep! 'weep!'

    So your chimneys I sweep, and in soot I sleep.

    There's little Tom Dacre, who cried when his head,

    That curl'd like a lamb's back, was shav'd: so I said

    `Hush, Tom! never mind it, for when your head's bare

    You know that the soot cannot spoil your white hair.'

    And so he was quiet, and that very night,

    As Tom was a-sleeping, he had such a sight!——

    That thousands of sweepers, Dick, Joe, Ned, and Jack,

    Were all of them lock'd up in coffins of black.

    And by came an Angel who had a bright key,

    And he open'd the coffins and set them all free;

    Then down a GREen plain leaping, laughing, they run,

    And wash in a river, and shine in the sun.

    Then naked and white, all their bags left behind,

    They rise upon clouds and sport in the wind;

    And the Angel told Tom, if he'd be a good boy,

    He'd have God for his father, and never want joy.

    And so Tom awoke; and we rose in the dark,

    And got with our bags and our brushes to work.

    Tho' the morning was cold, Tom was happy and warm;

    So if all do their duty they need not fear harm.
