WEE WILLIE WINKIE.







EE Willie Winkie
Runs through the town,
Upstairs and downstairs
In his night gown;


Tapping at the window,
Crying at the lock,
" Are the babes in their beds,
For it's now ten o'clock? "

CURLY LOCKS.






URLY locks, Curly locks,
Wilt thou be mine,
Thou shalt not wash dishes
Nor yet feed the swine,
But sit on a cushion, and
Sew a gold seam,
And feed upon Strawberries,
Sugar, and Cream.

LITTLE BOY BLUE.







ITTLE boy blue, come, blow me your
horn,
The sheep's in the meadow, the cow's
in the corn.

Where is the little boy tending the sheep ?
Under the haycock fast asleep-
Will you awake him ? no not I;
If I do, he'll be sure to cry.

PEEP-PEEP.







HAVE a little sister,
They call her Peep-peep,
S She wades through the waters,
Deep, deep, deep.
She climbs up the mountains,
High, high, high;
This poor little creature
She has but one eye.

OUR corners to my bed,
Four Angels round my head;
