CIX-D)ER-EL-LA, a poor lit-tlelass,Who danced into for-tune inslip-pers of glass;Be-loved by a prince whollad riches in store,She mlar-ried, and sift-ed thecin-ders no more.Was the DOG Mo-ther HIub-bard tlought dead,When she was so anxious toget him his bread;IIe was a pup full of fro-licand fun,And danced like a sylph whenhis sham-ming was done.



Was the ELF, with his won-drous Plough-We wish we could get suchan-other just now;Who gave to the farm-er aliar-vest of gold,And bread to the poor for atrifle was sold.Was the FisIH-ERn-AN, whohlad a catch,That proved rather more thanthe poor fellow's match;He bot-tlcd the Genius andsealed him up1 tight,And brought him to terms,which set him all right.

11 AwGOODY Two-SHOES, so prettyand so good-She lov'd all her neigh-bors,as every per-son should;She learnt her les-sons quickly,and all her duties knew,So was re-ward-ed by a gift ofshoes both good and new.Was ITUMP-TY I)UMP-TY, whosat up-on a wall,And be-ing over care-less, hegot all uogl fall-He hadno busi-ness climb-ing,or get-ting to that height,So as for all his bruises, I thinkthey served him right.

I. was thle Prince IN-VI-SI-BLE,J. who Jour-ney-ed on,And melt-ed into air at will,As if he'd real-ly gone.That is, you could not see him,Tho' stand-ing by his side,Which gave him great ad-van-tageFrom en-e-mies to hide.Was thei KING, with his swansIso white,That swan on the waters ofdancing light;He waved his wand o'er thetiny waves,And they o-beyed him as wil-ling slaves.

LIT-TLE HIIUMP-BACK SO crook-ed, who having no brains,Was so greed-v lie nearly gotchoked for his pains.-le offered no share of hisfruit or his cake,And never would give, butwas eager to take.Was MI-RAN-DA, who lovedthe roy-al sheep;3vy Fai-ries tor-ment-ed,She sore-ly re-pent-ed,The promise for-got-ten whichshe had vowed to keep.

Was a N UT-CRACK-ER, worthygood King,Be-cause for his subjects hecracked every-thing,And gave ul) the best with asmIile on his face,And did it with plea-sure andtrue king-ly grace.III111fThe OLD WO-MAN, whose tot-ter-ing legsShook her small basket ofnice new-laid eggs;She fell fast asleel) when sheshould have look'd out,And had her long petti-coatscut short about.If

Was old PIuss, with his bootsand his wit,\Who 1bolt-cd a gi-ant down,every bit;Who mlade his poor mas-terall others sir-pass,And 7win a Prin-cess as nmyLord Car-ra-bas.Was the Qur:EI Little Wo-man, who liv'd in a shoe,Who never (did work, so hadno-thillg to do;She vowed that the shoe wasa very good fit,So for all oth-er houses shecared not a bit.



Is for ROB-IN, a fo-rest-erbold,Whose story in many a balladis told-Fri-ar Tuck, Little John, anda host of them more,Lived on the king's deer fromthe greei-wood's fill store.Was SIx-BAD (the Sail-or),who roved on thle sea,To seek for ad-ven-tllre, wheree'er it miglht be;He feared neither ship-wreck11o)r storills- 11, ilot lhe,But quiclly re-turn'd to hisdearly loved sea.

Was THREE WISHES, long de-sired, they say,That when pos-sessed wereonly thrown away.This pleas-ant fable must besurely meantTo teach us hap-pi-ness andtrue content.Was UG-LY LIT-TLE )DUCKi, de-spised and scorned by all,That grew to be a no-ble swanand was no duck at all.There-fore from first ap-pear-ances you shoul( not judgein haste,For if youl do, you'll al-waysfind, your judg-ment is ill-placel.



VAL-EN-TINE and OR-SON, atale both good and rare,Where two de-sert-ed infantswere suckled by a bear;One re-mained all naked,and in a sorry plight,While his more lucky brotherbe-came a no-ble knight.Is fIr WHIT-TING -TON, Lon-don's Lord Mayor;Of ups and of downs hehad his filll share.A cat made the first of hisfor-tune, in-deed,But good-ness and hon-es-ty help-ed him at need.
