IF a hearty affecction for that innt res'I;g
little race, the race of children, is am- recoin-
ine-ndation, the writers of t1:' fdolloving page,
are well recommended ; and it' to have studied
in some degree th ir capa itiee,, habits, and
wants, with a wish to adapt thsc .simple ver-
ses to their real comprehelisions, and probable
improve m-nt....if this ha; ny fuir-thri- claim
to the indtuId.nce rf the public, it is the last
and only one they atte.mpit :ro make. T.' e
dc fici, ncy ofthc compositions na poetry, is by
no ine:im a secret to their authors ; butit was
thought desirable to *hi :lge ti- rv pottic
freedom and figure, and t\ -n L.-x cry long sdl-
abled iword, which might c.gite, perhaps, a
lakse idea, to tn. it- littI: rcad-r:s, or at least
r "

make a chasm in the c hain of conception.
Images which to us are so familiar that we
forget their imagery, arc terrible stumbling
blocks to children, who have none but literal
ideas ; and thou gh it may be allowable to in-
troduce a simple kind, which a little mater-
nal attention will easily' xplain, and which
may tcnd to excite a taste for natural andpo-
etic beauty, c c rn- thingstiperfluous ithasbeen
a primary endeavour to avoid.

To those parents into vshose hands this lit-
tle volume may chance to fall, it is vr' yr.s-
pectfullv in;cribtd ; .anl vry altectionattlh

'oung laMb, bi sport and frisk on the sides of the hill,
Thlie tihoney bee wakes from her sleep,
The tuirtlh-dove opens her soft-cooing bill,
And .now-drops and primroses peep.

All nature looks active, delighlful, and gay,
The creatures begin d cir employ*,. ,
Ah! It me not be lesi ndVIUIOusu ln they,
An idkI, or ind,-lent boy. .

Now while in the spring .'m. rigonr and bloo,
lInthe pass of 'Cur lvarnirg I'll run; b..,
Nor let the be,t part o' m, being consum,4._ -.

Thus ihileto my'.essons with caM I' attend,
And store up the knowledge I gain,
When ilie uiwcr of'AI stall upm me descend,
'Twill cheer the dark season ol pain.

Then since joy and glee %ilh ac.tiiily join,

While the idle ltui- bect in the shadule to re(line,

An Instant or li'e has mnore value than all
The gold that in India they find.


Notdi'mnids that brilliinlly beam in the mine,

For gems Can but make us look gaudy and fine,

Arid stilor'd the full garners with grain;
Did you heir how the woods %ith their merry shouts
As they bore the last sheaf from the plain ?

But hark! r'norm the % oudiland tile sotind of a gun,

Al! surely 'tis wicked, Ifr nothing but run

Runs sirft thro' the brusho'od and grass ;
How she turns, how she Ainds, and she tries evere'

Where woodbines crept over thie door,
And jessamines peep'd in between.

OLD John had an apple tree, healthy a]nd gr'el,
Which bore the best codlins that ever were seen,
So juicy, 4 miellow and red
And % hen they were ripe, a3s old Johrnny u as poor,

Little Dick'Ls next neighbour, one often might see,
With longing eye viewing this nice apple tree, '
And wishing a codlin would fall;
One day, as he stoodin the heat of the sun,
He began thinking whether he might not take one,
And then he look'd over the wall.

And as he again cast his eye on the tree,
He said to himself, 0, how nice they would be;
So cool and re Fre r,iing to-day!
The tree Ls so full, and I'd only take one,
And old John won't see, for he is not at home,
And nobody is in the way."

Bu( stop, lIttle boy, take your hand from the bongh,
Remember, tho" old John can't see you ju.t now,
And no one to chide yo, iq niglh,
There is 0Ox, >Iho hy nighI just as well as by /by,

UPON a mountain's grassy side
Where many a tall fir grew,
Young Colin wandered with his flocks,
Aud many a hardship knew.

No downy pilgw for his Aead,
No sliter'd home had he,'
The green grass was his only bed,
Beinath some .had) tree. .

Dry bread, and waier r',,m the spring,
C.'rnps'.d his temp'rate fare ;
Yet C.lti ate "ihli thiankruiA heart,
.Jor relt a murmur thEre.

A cheerful snile upio.n lhii fjce
Was ever seer. t plai,
He env;'d not the rich /oi great,
More happy, i'r than they.

-"---w-' --U- rr"yr'


While neathh some spreading shade he sat,
Beside his fleecy flocks,
His soft pipe warbled thiro' the ,ood,o
And echoed from the rocks.

An ancient castle on the pLain,
In 'ileint grandew- stood,
And there the young lord Henry dwelt;
The proud, but not the good.

And oft he wandered o'er the plain,
Or on the mrtuntain's side,
And with surprise and envy too
The humble Qlin ey'd.

' And why," said he," am I deny'd
That cheerfulness and joy,
That ever smiles upon the race
Of this poor shepherd boy?

Nor titles, honours, or estates,
-Or 'wealih, orpow'r has he;
Aid yet, tho' destitute and poor,
He seemdinmiore blest than me."'
D 2


For this lord Henry did not know,
That pleasure ne'er is found,
Where angry passions reign and rule,
And evil deeds abound.

Colin, tho' poor, was humble too,
Benevolent and kind :
While passion, anger, rage, and pride,
Disturb'dlord Henry's mind.

Thus Colin, tho' a shepherd boy,
Was ever glad and gay; ,
And Henry, tho' a noble lord,
To discontent a prey. j. T.

As Billy and Tommy were walking one day,
They came by a fine or:chird s;.le;
Ti,' ",1 rather eat apples than spell, read, or play,
And Tommy to Billy then cr)'d ;

Oh Brother, .lr~k see! hliat fine clusters hang

I \:ill have an 11ple i I ill have a pear,
.Or else itsh.i! chst i, e a 1,!


Said Billy to Tommy, to steal is a sin, ,
Mamma hILa, of told this to thee ; .
I ne'er yet stole, nor now will begin;
So red apples hang on the tree.

You are a good boy, as you ever have been,
Said Tommy, let's walk on my lad;
We'll call on our school-rellow, little Bub Green,
And to see us I .know he'llbe Hlad.

They came to a house, and they rang at the gat c,
And ask'd- "Pray is Bobby at home P"
SBLt Bobby's good m:anncrs cdi not let them wait ;
He out or the parlour did come.

Bub smi'd and he laughli'J, and he caperd U.t iL j',,'.

And near the high wall, when these Uttle boys came,
They suLted, as if from a toad.

With terrible teeth like a saw,

It keeps wicked robbers in a.we.

This trap tears their legs-0 so sad t

T HERE were two friends, a charming little pair!
Brunette the brown, and Blanchidine the fair
This cLild to lore Brunette Oid still incline,
And much Brunette lov'd sweet Blanchidine.
Brunette in dress was neat yet wond'rouS plaift,
But Blanchidine of finery was vain.

Nowm Blanchidine a new acquaintance made,
A little miis, most splendidly array'd :
Feathers and laces beauteous to behold,
And India frock, with spots of shining Zold.-
Said Blanchidine, a miss so richly dress'd.
Mlost sure deserves by all to be caress'd;
To play with roe if she will condescend,
Henrerr.yard she shall be my only friend,
For this new miss, so dressed and so adorned,

Tho' seldom, yet when she was rude,
Or ever in a naughty mood,
Her punishment was Lhis dis-race, :
A large fine cap adorned with lace,
Wilh featht rs and with ribl)nax too;
The work was neat, the fashion iew !
Yet as a fool's-cap was itf name,
She dreaded much to wear the same. .

A lady, fashionably gay,
Did to mamma a visit pay.
Sophia star'd, then whispering said,
c Why, dear m sima, n 0 lookit 'her head!
To be s& tall and wicked too,
The -trang-eest. thing I ever knew;
What naughtn tricks, pray,li has she done, .
That tln-y have put that fools-cap on ."



AH! why will my dear little girl be so cro.s. ,
And cry, and look sulLky and pout?
To lose her sweet smile is a terrible loss,
I can't even kiss her without.

You say you don't like to be wash'd and be rest,
But would you be dirty and foul?
Come, drive that long sob from your dear little
And clear your street face from its scowl.

Iirthe ater i- cold, and the comb hurts your bcad,
And the soap has got into your e,
Will the water grow warmer li.,r Il that
And what good Bilf it d. you to cry?

It is notto tcaze you, and hirt you, my sweet,
But onti f.,r kmdnesk and care, '
That I wash }.;,u and dres you, and make you
And coemb out your tanglesome hair..
And comb out your tanglesome bair,*.*'"



I don't mind the trouble, if you would not cry,
But pay me for all with a kiss; 7

Tray does as wre bid him, and gives no office,
How diligent Richard should be!

If I do but ,ust whistle, as often you've seen,

And see when I throw my hat'over the pale,
He letches it back, and comes wagging hWs tail,
Aud lays it down close b3 my side.

VHEN Harry and -Dick had been striving to please,
Their father (to whom it was known)
lade two little gardens and stock'd themn with
And gaye one to each for his ovm.

arry thank'd his papa, and with rake, hoe, and
Directly began his employ :
knd soon such a neat little garden was made,
That he panted with labour and joy.

here was always some bed or some border to gnend,
Or something to tie or to stick
Vnd Harry rose early his garden to tend,
WVhile snoring lay indolent Dick.

'lie tulip the rose and the ly so while,
United their beautiifil bloom
\nd often the honey-bee stopped from his sight,
To sip the delicious perfume.

roR ITFAIT uTati 81

A neat row of peas in full blossom were seen,
French beans were beginning to sloot;
And his goose berries and currants, though yet they
were green,
SForetold him a plenty of fruit.

But Richard lov'd better in bed to repose,
And snug as he curl'd himself round,
Forgot that no tulip, nor lily, nor rose,
Nor plant 'a his garden was found.

J Rank weeds and tall nettles difigur'd his beds,
Nor c',bbage nor lettuce were seen,
The slug and the snail shew'd their mischievous
Aid eat ev'r3 leaf that was green.

Thus Richard the idle, ,ho shrunk from the col,
Beheld his trees naked and bare;
Whilst Harry the active, was charm'd to behold,
bhe fruit of his patience and care.

As the ball had popp'd in, so neTiighbonr popped ot,
And with a good horsewhip he beaVtkim about,
Till Harry repented his run.

When little folks think they know better than great,
And what is forbidden them do;
We mu-it always expect to see, sooner or late,
That such wise little tools have a similar fate,
And that one of the fifty goes through.



TIBE fos and the crow,
In prose, I w ell know-,
Many good little girl can rehearse;
Perhaps it willteli,
Pretty nearly as well,
if we try the same Fable in verse


In a dairy a crow
Having entiir'd to go,
,omie fiuod lbr her young ones to seek,
Flew up in the trees, : ,
WVith a fine piece oF cheese,
Which she jo) tdlly held in her beak.

A fox iho liv'd righ,
To the tree saw her fly,
And to share in the prize made a vow !
For having just din'd,
He f9r cheese felt inclio'd,
So he went and sit under the bough.

She was cunning he knew,
But So was he too,
And with fLIL'ry adapted his plan ;
For lie hiew if'he'd speak
It must fall from her beak,
So bon ing politely, began; :

"'Tis a very fine day ;"
(Not a word tdid] she say ;)
"The wind, I believe, ma'am, is south


FOut iNFANT Mibtrs.

A Fne hardest for pease:" '
He then look'cd at the cheese,
Bi t the crow did not open her mouth.

Sly reynard, not tied,
Her plumage admir'd,
SHow charming' how brilliant its hue '
The voice must be fine,
or a bird so divine,
Ah let me just hear it-pray do.

Believe me I long..
To hear a sweet song."
I 1 he sdly crow foolishly tries,-
She scarce gave one squall,
When the cheese she let fall,
And the fox ran away with the prif
MORL.. .
S Ye innocent fuair,
OF coxcombs beware,
To flattery never give ear;
Try well each pretence,
And keep to plain sense,
And then ye have little to fear.

MAY cloudless beams of grace and truth
Adorn my daughter's op'ning youth;
Long, happy in her native osme .
Am."ns its fragrant gruves to roa. ,
Mav choicest blessing-i her attend, ,
Blest in her parents, sisters, friend!
May no rude wish assail lie breast.
To lore l.is world, by all conlist
As onil giv'n us to prepare
For one eternal, bright, and fair.
This world shall then no force retain,
Its syren voice shall charm in vain.,
Religion's aid, I rue peace a ill bring,
Her voice with j'iv shall praises sing,
To him whose streams of mercy flow,
To cheer the heart o'.rcharg'd with woe;
And whilst retirement's sieet s we proi .
For ever praise redeeming love.



1HO1W happy the days of your youth,
I. instructed in virtue and truth,
By the parents you love and revere.
Your dwelling is healthy and neat,
Of sisters so dear the retreat,
And of neighbours abundance are near.

Oh think whence these btessings arise,
1f rom a being so gracious and wise,
And should they by himbe withdrawn:
Should es'ry degree ordistress,
My dearest or daughters nppress,
When torn From the sr-eet verdant lan :

1- rom what must she then seek relief,
When her mind is disturbed with gnel, ,
But from God who but chastens to bless :;
Fine garments, rich food, and bright Ine,
With which the voluptuous dine, :
Enern ate beyond all redress. '

In the sad sober moments ol' woe,
W which each mortal is desU,'dl to know,
With joy will a Christian perceive,
That life as a vision recedes,
That faith rendered bright by good deeds.
A blessed reward ill rcerh'e.

Should you as a mother or wife,.
Be call'd on to act in this life,
Oh -tr, e ev'ry virtue to trpe;
On the minds you may have to attend,
Join at (oice the kind mothertid friend,
SAnd pr-i lbr their virtue and gr.ce.
