ACORNS.ACORNS that grow on the great oak treeMake nice little cups for Grace and me;We fill them with dew at early morn,And make tiny rolls of seeds of corn.BARN.The BARN's a capital place for play,When we are warm on a Summer's day;The pigeons sit on the roof and coo,While cows are breathing a drowsy "M-o-o!"COWS.Cows are delightful creatures, I think;They give us such fresh, sweet milk to drink,When the buttercups are golden bright,And Summer meadows with daisies white.DUCKS.DUCKS sail all day on the shining pond;Of water they must be very fond;But though their feathers upon it rest,It does not wet their beautiful breast.1

EGGS.To seek in the nests EGGS clean and white,Is Sister Grace's and my delight;The basket is full of those we found,And three besides we laid on the ground.FARM.Grandmamma's FARM is a charming place,And very happy am I and Grace,When we go to see her with Mamma,And walk in the fields with dear Papa.GATE.There is John looking over the GATE;For Granny always thinks we are late,And waits in the porch for our return,And says, "To be punctual we must learn."HORSES.Here are the HORSEs, Dobbin and Joe,Who backwards and forwards meekly go,Dragging the plough o'er the stubborn soil,Winning us bread by their patient toil.INN.At the village INN the stage-coach waits,For here his horses the coachman baits,And while they drink and get a short rest,Calls for "a glass of the landlord's best."2

JACKDAWS.JACKDAWS build on the highest steeple;They are disliked by many people,Because when they can they always steal,Or things they cannot want, conceal.KITE.John has a KITE which flies very high,It seems quite lost in the dark blue sky:If I could sit on its paper tail,Up to the snowy clouds I would sail.LADDER.Here is the LADDER the gardener bringsTo mount the tree where the blackbird sings,And gather cherries for Grace and me;They're beautifully ripe and red, you see.MILL.This is the MILL, where the wheel goes round,And wheat into nice white flour is ground.The Miller sings when his work is done:To be a Miller must be great fun.3

NUTTING.NUTTING'S the best of country pleasures;To strip the green boughs of their treasuresDelights all children, both rich and poor,Who eagerly share the squirrels' store.ORCHARD.Johnny and I in the ORCHARD play,And gather apples and pears to-day;Nothing the rosy beauty can match,Of those in my little apron I catch.PLOUGH.The PLOUGH cuts deep furrows, long and straight,While close beside it the sparrows wait,To-pick up the worms on ev'ry side,And thus for their little broods provide.QUARRY.In the QUARRY men are hewing stone;A piece of rock by their side is thrown.They dig out gravel and snowy chalk:It is dangerous on the edge to walk.4

RABBITS.These RABBITS look very much afraid;I think from their warren they have strayed,To have in the field a game of play;Should they see us they will run away.STILE.This is the STILE that we cannot climb;Mamma says we shall do it in time;Now we creep under the lower railing,Taking firm hold of the nearest paling.TEAM.The TEAM goes homeward at set of sun,Its daily labour over and done;We hope the carter off Dobbin won't slip,As he waves and cracks his long thick whip.URCHIN.This URCHIN belongs to the gipsy bandWho pitch their tents on Grandmamma's land;He is resting awhile his weary feet,And listening to chimes far off, but sweet.5

VINE.The VINE looks pretty upon the wall;From its stem the purple clusters fall.Could you think, when you look at a Vine,Such little berries would make strong wine?WAGGON.The WAGGON moves slowly up the road;The horses find it a heavy load,For it is full of all sorts of things,That home from market the carter brings.X. YEW.The sails of the Mill make an X, you see,And down below grows an old YEW tree;To eat its red berries be afraid.Bows from its wood long ago were made.ZIG-ZAG.ZIG-ZAG goes the path up the steep hill,Past the old yew tree, under the mill.We have not time up its turns to run,For our country visit now is done.6
