"I love you better than tongue can tell."
Then she teased and pouted full half the day,
Till her mother rejoiced when she went to play.
"I love you, Mother," said little Fan;
"Today I'll help you all I can;
How glad I am school doesn't keep!"
So she rocked the baby till it fell asleep.
Then stepping softly, she took the broom.
And swept the floor and tidied the room.
Busy and happy all day was she,
Helpful and happy as child could be.
"I love you, Mother," again they said,
Three little children going to bed.
How do you think that Mother guessed,
Which of them really loved her best?
