'71 !
So she roamed away, near the eve of (lay;
Left the Shepherd's care,
-.i!~ .Left the meadow fair,
And she wandered where
0K Other sheep were none;
Soon the night drew on,
And she was alone
Her fears to bear,
Foolish little Lamb !
4 AVWhen the Shepherd knows day is at its close,
le his flock doth lead
From the dewy mead;
H And they all with speed
Follow where the fold
Sheep and lambs will hold,
Safe from harm and cold:
But who will. heed
The straying Lamb ?
Sure he is to find one is left behind:
For he counts them all,
And by name doth call
Every lambkin small.
And its dam distrest
Bleats and cannot rest;-
Who will go in quest,
Ere night shall fall,
Of the lost, lost Lamb ?

IIe, the Shepherd will: over dale and hill
Swiftly he will go,
Searching to and fio,
No rest will lie know
Till the lost lie find!
He, the Shepherd kind,
1With his (log behind,
Above, below,
Seeks the missing Lamb.
Where now lias it stravye ? Better it lad stayed
With the other sheep!
Stars begill to peep,
Yet it cannot sleep;
Nothing there to eat,
Piteous its bleat,
Sore its achingo feet,
It can but creep:
WNeary little Lamb!
Dan ger too is mii h; for the rocks are high :
In the drear dalrk nioglt,
With its lale starlight,
Paths are lost to siglht.
There without a guide,
If its feet should slide
Down the steep hill-side,
How sad its plight I
Unhappy little Lamb !

All the long night through, wet with heavy dew,
To and fro it moved,
Here and there it roved,
Lonely and unloved:
And the breaking morn
Found it still forlorn,
Weak and faint and worln,
Its folly proved:
Oh wayward Lamb!
Strength was nearly spent, yet it onward went:
Through the forest trees
Running brook it sees;
And its thirst to appease, I
Standing on the brink,
Glad it stoops to drink:
Why now does it shrink ?
Is it the breeze
That stirs-ppoor Lanmb ?
On thle farther side, where the bushes hide,
Lurlks the Wolf, who spies
With fierce hungry eyes,
And with glad surprise,
Little Lambkin by!
Quickly he draws nigh,
Sure and stealthily,
From where lihe lies:
Oh poor, poor Lamlb! |

i, With a sudden spring, on the helpless thing
Now he comes; when hark!
Loud the sheep-dog's bark!
P True to hit its mark
Is the Shepherd's gun
Man and dog quick run,
..4.-,Ai- And the deed is done:
Mid brushwood dark
Lies the panting Lamb
Trembling, yet it lives; and the Shepherd gives
Gentle, ready aid;
In-his strong arms stayed,
It is not afraid:
; Henceforth it will be
Led submissively; i
This is liberty
Which knows no dread:
Repentant little Lamb!
To his cottage door straight the Lamb he bore:
Hear its timid bleat!
Eager little feet
* ~Haste with joy to meet:
How the children shout!
How they run about!
Now within, without,
All glad to greet
The rescued Lamb!

SEE the little Lamb: near it is its dam.
By her side to stay,
Then to frisk away,
This is pretty play:
If the mother bleat,
It with nimble feet
Runs its dam to meet,
With frolics gay:
Playful little Lamb!
See the Shepherd near: nothing need they fear.
Safe in his kind care,
He will lead them where
In the meadows fair
Daisies white are seen,
Grass of freshest green,
Springing flowers between;
What dainty fare!
Happy little Lamb!
See the watch-dog sleeps; and the Lambkin keeps
Trotting to and fro:
Says she, "Well I know
Where clear waters flow;
I should like to be
Set at liberty,
Other fields to see;
So off I'll go !"
Restless little Lamb !

SEE the little Lamb: near it is its dam. By her side to stay, Then to frisk away, This is pretty play: If the mother bleat, It with nimble feet Runs its dam to meet, With frolics gay: Playful little Lamb! See the Shepherd near: nothing need they fear. Safe in his kind care, He will lead them where In the meadows fair Daisies white are seen, Grass of freshest green, Springing flowers between; What dainty fare! Happy little Lamb! See the watch-dog sleeps; and the Lambkin keeps Trotting to and fro: Says she, "Well I know Where clear waters flow; I should like to be Set at liberty, Other fields to see; So off I'll go !" Restless little Lamb

All the long night through, wet with heavy dew,
To and fro it moved,
Here and there it roved,
Lonely and unloved:
And the breaking morn
Found it still forlorn,
Weak and faint and worn,
Its folly proved:
Oh wayward Lamb!
Strength was nearly spent, yet it onward went :
Through the forest trees
Running brook it sees;
And its thirst to appease,
Standing on the brink,
Glad it stoops to drink:
Why now does it shrink ?
Is it the breeze
That stirs-poor Lamb ?
On the farther side, where the bushes hide,
Lurks the Wolf, who spies
With fierce hungry eyes,
And with glad surprise,
Little Lambkin by!
Quickly he draws nigh,
Sure and stealthily,
From where he lies:
Oh poor, poor Lamb!

With a sudden spring, on the helpless thing
Now he comes; when hark!
Loud the sheep-dog's bark!
True to hit its mark
Is the Shepherd's gun!
Man and dog quick run,
And the deed is done:
Mid brushwood dark
Lies the panting Lamb!
Trembling, yet it lives; and the Shepherd gives
Gentle, ready aid;
In his strong arms stayed,
It is not afraid:
Henceforth it will be
Led submissively;
This is liberty
Which knows no dread:
Repentant little Lamb !
To his cottage door straight the Lamb he bore:
Hear its timid bleat!
Eager little feet
Haste with joy to meet:
How the children shout!
How they run about!
Now within, without,
All glad to greet
The rescued Lamb!

So she roamed away, near the eve of day; Left the Shepherd's care, Left the meadow fair, And she wandered where Other sheep were none; Soon the night drew on, And she was alone Her fears to bear, Foolish little Lamb! When the Shepherd knows day is at its close, HIe his flock doth lead From the dewy mead; And they all with speed Follow where the fold Sheep and lambs will hold, Safe from harm and cold: But who will heed The straying Lamb ? Sure he is to find one is left behind : For he counts them all, And by name doth call Every lambkin small. And its dam distrest Bleats and cannot rest;Who will go in quest, Ere night shall fall, Of the lost, lost Lamb?

IIe, the Shepherd will: over dale and hill Swiftly he will go, Searching to and fio, No rest will lie know Till the lost lie find! He, the Shepherd kind, 1With his (log behind, Above, below, Seeks the missing Lamb. Where now hlas it strayed ? Better it lhad stayed With the other sheep! Stars begill to peep, Yet it cannot sleep; Nothing there to eat, Piteous its bleat, Sore its achingo feet, It can but creep: WNeary little Lamb! Dan gel too is mih; for the rocks are high : In the drear dalrk nioglt, WTith its pale starlight, Paths are lost to sight. There without a guide, If its feet should slide Down the steep hill-side, How sad its plight! Unhappy little Lamb I
