THE DOE.


Forbear to vex the patient Ass,

Its heaving sides to goad,
And far and safe its useful back

Will carry many a load.


THE BEAR.



In the cold countries of the North

Lives the white Polar Bear,

And 'mong the dreary ice-caves makes

Its dark and dreadful lair.








THE CAMEL.



The Camel is a useful beast,

Patient, and slow, and mild;

To man a blessing and a boon

In Afric's sandy wild.


Graceful and gentle is the Doe;

Its tawny coat how sleek!
How bright yet tender are its eyes!

Its glance how softly meek!


THE ELEPHANT.

-4----+e-

'To noble race, 0 Elephant,

Thou surely dost belong;

So grave, and kind, and sadly wise,

So gentle, yet so strong !








THE FOX.

~-4*+----

The Fox will skulk in ferny brake,

Yet loves the haunts of men;

And prowls around the farm, to pounce

On capon, goose, or hen.

THE GIRAFFE.


Full seventeen feet the Giraffe tall
Measures "from top to toe,"
And with his neck outstretched can reach
The branch that bendeth low.


THE HYENA.


In Asia and in Africa
The fierce Hyenas prowl,
And oft at night the traveller starts
To hear their savage howl.


THE ICHNEUMON.


A foe to birds and rats and mice,
See the Ichneumon glide!
Oft, too, on reptiles or their eggs
Its hungry teeth are tried.


The Jaguar haunts the forest-depths,
And climbs each mighty tree;
The Tiger of the New World called,
A crAfty beast is he!


THE KANGAROO.


The timid Kangaroo frequents
The wild Australian brakes;
With long hind-legs and fore-legs short
Tremendous leaps he takes.


THE LION.


With tawny hide and flowing mane,
And loud-resounding roar,
Of animals the Lion's king,
And all bow down before.

THE MANDRILL.


In Africa the Mandrill lives,
Full five feet tall he stands;
With furrowed cheek-bones, tufted hair,
And hairy arms and hands.


THE NYLGHAU.


In Hindustan's dense forest-depths,
Among the tangled groves,
With slender limbs but powerful frame
The shapely Nylghau roves.


THE OTTER.


Upon the streamlet's rushy bank
The Otter takes her rest,
And dives into the water deep
When by the hunters prest.


The Lion of America,
The Puma oft is called;
More like a cat it seems to be,
With head so round and bald.

The Quagga gallops free;
With black-brown mane and white-barred
A gallant beast is he [neck,

THE PUMA.














THE WOLF.


O'er Scotland's heather hills the Stag
Pursues his rapid way,
And tosses high his antlered head
When he is brought to bay.


THE TIGER.


Fiercest of all the beasts of prey,
With eyes that glow like fire,
And glossy hide, who does not dread
The Tiger, yet admire ?


THE VIRGINIAN


OPOSSUM.


In hollow trees the Opossum lives,
And slumbers through the day,
But when the shades of night descend,
Goes forth in search of prey.


Fierce is the wolf, and crafty too,
And swift of foot is he;
In forest-depths and mountain-glens
He loves to wander free.

THE YAK.


In Central Asia, far away,
'Mid Thibet's pastures green,
With shaggy hide and bushy tail,
The valued Yak is seen.


THE ZEBRA.


As strong and swift as any horse,
The Zebra skims the plain;
With glossy bands of deepest black,
Long ears, and upright mane.
