MORE HASTE, WORSE SPEED. 3NCE little Tom Touter Had such a fine pouter-Determined to ride him was he. One very fine day He mounted, they sayAnd away flew the bird to the sea. But poor Tommy Touter Was sick of the pouter, As he thought of his toast and his tea. At last he came back, When Tommy, good lack! Was as thankful as thankful could be. 0


EARLY TO BED, AND EARLY TO RISE. OU naughty bird, I want to know Why you so early rise; And wake me, when you know that I Have hardly closed my eyes ?" "Why, really, dear," said Cocky Crow, "I hear you with surprise; You go to bed with other lambs, And quickly shut your eyes. "So when I sound my morning call, Be quick, my pet, and rise; For that's the way to healthy be, And wealthy, love, and wise."
