Soft is the Heart of a Child (III) detail

Bitter are the tears of a child:
Sweeten them.
Deep are the thoughts of a child:
Quiet them.
Sharp is the grief of a child:
Take it from him.
Soft is the heart of a child:
Do nothing to harden it.

Lady Pamela Wyndham Glenconner

They are lovely words, Angela. The last two lines have been with me since 2000...never too far from the surface of my mind.
