Blow, blow, crack your cheeks;
Mercy! how the trumpet squeaks.

This poor little boy is very sick:
Don't you hope he will get well quick ?

See this dear little kitten, she's climbed the top shelf,
And as she looks down, she says to herself,
If I wasn't afraid of that monstrous dog Tray,
I'd jump down on the carpet, and have a good play.

I guess these boys are late to school,
Or else that they have broken some rule.

See these children, one in doors, one
What do you suppose they are talk-
ing about ?

See the King on his throne and the
Queen at his feet;
Should you not think he might give
her a seat ?

Blow the fire and hurry the cakes,
The kettle boils, the biscuit bakes.

Shut your eyes, mother is near,
Go to sleep and never fear.


China, where we get our tea,
these queer people that you see.

Is it not sad ? this bird is dead;
See how it droops its little head.

Pray, boys, do you think so much labor, toil and fuss,
Is well spent in catching this huge hippopotamus ?
Why yes, says Frank Jones, for I've often been told
That their teeth for five dollars a pound can be sold.

How sad Nelly looks! Her dear brother Ned,
Whom she loved so much, alas! is dead.

This looks to me
Like a very old tree.

Why don't you hurry and get in doors,
Don't you see how fast it pours ?

One, two, three, four; that's too heavy a
If you all swing at once you will break
down the gate.

Stand back from off the track,
The train will be here in a minute;
Don't hurry, fret, or worry,
There's room for all within it.

A finer looking dog

Universal respect has been won
By the missionary, LIVINGSTON;
He modesty, valor and goodness combined,
In proportions we very seldom find.

These birds are holding a council of war-
A graver assemblage I never saw.

Dangerous work, it appears to me,
Hunting these huge fellows must be.

In England a great many years ago,
The Emperor Bonaparte, of whom you know,
Was bitterly hated, dreaded and feared,
And his name used often, so it appeared,
By nurse and school-marm,
As threat and alarm.
They, their children often told,
If they were not good-
They certainly should
To terrible "Boney" surely be sold.

The sun has set, and work is done,
Now for an evening of innocent fun.
Pile up the fire,
Higher and higher!
While in the chimney corner snug,
Or before the fire, upon the rug,
We strive, with humorous song and joke,
Mirth and good nature to provoke.

These men are engaged in deadly strife;
I fear one or the other will lose his life.

This ancient house, with its poplar tree,
Has a terrible gloomy look to me.

Enjoys her quarters I'll engage.

While this little babe doth sleep,
Angels a watch about it keep.

A water-fall,
That is all.

This building has an imposing look;
'Tis built of white marble, so I read in a book.
