UW JESSIE WAS LOST
L O'.f.eae s .S, R.a
A LITTLE girl lived in a
very la-re city,
In a house that was big, that
was fine, that. was high;
(I always hIave thought it i
very great pity
That we cannot. teach children
in London to fly,
For the stairs are as windin-r
Sand long as miny ditty,
And the nursery's always tihe
near(--t tile sky).
But this little girl Jessie Ii:,!
Inn!,-'s rather strni 'er
Than mrr, t little girls, for, to
qhe was -ble to cry so much
lou,ler and lorger
Than any small child of her a.;e
or her size.

SIn Kensington Gardens my Jessie went walking,
I I With Nurse, and the baby, and Bessie the maid;
\ Ti-They chatter'd like magpi-s, but what they were talking
They kuew very little, I'm sally afr.iid.
-rI know.,this, as there Nure was converSing, with Bessie,
They forgot so entirely about their young charge,
That, seizing the chance, off went little Miss Jessie,
SUpon finding herself
SSlike a wild beast

She ran very quickly, between
the trees winding,
As far from the Nurses as ever
And she thought to herself, but
without at all minding,
"Now I shall be lost, like the
Babes in the Wood."
NO Just, then she fell down on
some very hard gravel,
r nd wounded her hand, and her elbow
And began t.o have doubts as to whether

Tiie Park-keepllr saim her, and then
she grc\ paler;
He thought she was frightened be-
caus she wav lost;
She thought with his thick stick
he meant to assail her,
For a Park-keeper's really as bad
as a ghost.
The Park-keeper led her quite kindly, and brought her
To his lodge, and there gave her a raspberry drop;
But in spite of all that he could do, and his daughter,
She cried as if never intending to stop.
In vain did the Keeper to soothe her endeavour,
In vain did his daughters all give her a kiss;
Her sobs became louder-they all said, I never
In all my life, never heard
crying like this!"
A gentleman, taking a walk with a lady
Was strolling on slowly, enjoying the
The grass all so green and the pathway
When they heard a peculiar noise that
It was made up of sobs, and of calling
And of crying, the loudest you ever
And the lady exclaimed, "That can never
It is so like her crying-we'll go and

Oh yes, it was Jessie, their own
But how she got there, there
was no one to say;
And thus having found her. be-

They fo rot, quite to sb-l
her fur running away'.
