Who loved best?

mother
“I love you, mother,” said little John;
Then forgetting work, his cap went on,
And he was off to the garden swing,
Leaving his mother the wood to bring.

“I love you, mother,” said rosy Nell;
“I love you better than tongue can tell;”
Then she teased and she 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 that 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 dusted the room;
Busy and happy all day was she,
Helpful and cheerful as child could be.
 Listening to the lark percy tarrant
“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?
