There are verses in Mother Goose, whose topics are not just for children in the nursery. This little verse contains a very wise bit of rarely-taken advice! The book will be a compilation of portraits of aged nursery rhyme characters, so the title of this image in the book will be: "Mary and Tommy".

Fears and Tears

Tommy's tears and Mary's fears

Will make them old before their years.
