Robinis Bre akfast.

Two little red-breasts- ;, .
One wintry cla, ---
)Bean to wonder -
And then to say',
"How aboul- breakfast
lThis \\inl'Pl dcay?"

Tvo little maidens,
One wintry day,
Into Ihe gcarclen
Wended their way,
Where the snow lay deep
Thai winter' dciy.

One, wilth a broom,
Swepl I-he snow\ awvci
One, scalter ed crumbs,
Then al\clyv to plaov
And the robins breaklj-sled
IThatl invilrv day.

\Wren clouds cover the sun's briht ray,
When rain-drops palmer where we play,
[i is a lon, lone toilsome way-
All Ihe way round the clock.

When Master i'red can'l do his sums
Or lesson pajies marked with Ihumrbs,
The hours Seem veWr's ii. bed lime comes--
All ithe \Vay round the clock.

When Daisy-star-.s comCe oul wilh Sprinij
And cowslins home lehc children bring,
Like larks a morn, tlhe children sing-
All the way round 1he clock.
