MY CHILDREN.



"M Y Children 1" How a mother loves
IV Of those sweet words the sound T
And better little ones than mine
I'm sure cannot be found.
And as most children like to hear
What other children do,
Mamma will have a little chat
About her pets with you.
They live, not very far from town,
Amidst green fields and trees;
They've gardens, and a croquet-ground,
And fowls, and hives of bees.
In summer, ere the sun has dried
The dewy pearls of dawn,
Nurse takes the young ones out with her,
To play upon the lawn.
They gather from the tiny beds
Of flowers they call their own,
The fairest blossoms they can find,
-Meant for Mamma alone.
And when they see me at the door,
Each happy little thing
Hurries to claim a morning kiss,
And its sweet gift to bring.

MY CHILDREN.

When morning walks and easy tasks
Are ended for the day,
My Children to the nursery haste,
To pass an hour in play.

George mounts the great new rocking-horse,
While Johnny clings behind,
And Arthur, kneeling in the front,
Is vainly told to "mind !"
He does not fear that mettled steed,
But laughs at George's call.
Harold and Edward on the floor
Play at a game of ball.

Edith and merry little Maud
Their favourite dolly dress;
While Mary begs the Nursemaid, Anne,
HER baby to caress.

And little Rose cries: "Take me up,
Please, Anne; I'll be so good,
If you will only sing to me
The 'Babies in the Wood.'"

Harry flings up his gay balloon
Full in the window's light,
And Baby, on the Nurse's lap,
Looks on in dumb delight.

MY CHILDREN.

"My Children I" Happy is the age,
Pleased with a simple toy I
Long may your Ifttle hearts rejoice
In pure and childlike joy I
Once every year we have a feast.
I wish that you could see
What fun the village children have
When they come here to tea.
Tables with tea and cakes and fruit
Are spread beneath the trees;
My Children with kind words and smiles
Seek their young guests to please.
No little one is left without
A share of the good things;
To ev'ry child around the board
Its dainties Edith brings.
At first the visitors are shy,
And hang their heads and blush;
But soon a rising murmur breaks
With soft, low sound, the hush.
And when the tables are removed,
And croquet-hoops put out,
The hidden joy breaks loudly forth
In laugh and schoolboy shout.

MY CHILDREN

The games are formed upon the lawn;
The boys at football play;
Aunt Helen leads a merry round
To an old nursery lay.
And, Here we dance looby, looby,"
The sweet young voices sing,
Till with laugh and song and boys' shout,
The echoing woodlands ring.
Their Uncle John stands by the swing,
And tosses high and low
Whoever likes to test his skill,
And an airy ride to go.
Papa-best playmate of them all-
The younger children takes,
And teaches them a game, which ends
In winning sweets and cakes.
Within the pretty summer-house
Maud and her Cousin Kate,
Mallet in hand-of croquet tired-
Are pleased awhile to wait.
And sweet the laugh and merry shout,
And sweet the children's song,
And sweet the blackbird's tender lay,
The fresh green woods among.

.MY CHILDREN.

My Children think it, too, a treat
To go and purchase toys
At Mrs. Grey's well-furnished shop
-Delight of girls and boys.
And by their purchases Mamma
Can very plainly see
Her darlings' thoughts, and what their tastes
In after life will be.
A work-box Edith buys: she loves
Better to work than play;
George takes a bat; a soldier John,
Which he will give away;
For Johnny better loves to please,
And see another's joy,
Than on a fancy of his own
His savings to employ.
Maud, too, cares more for little Rose
Than for her own sweet self,
And gladly spends on toys for her
Her wisely-hoarded wealth.
When Arthur goes to town with us,
He's very sure to buy
Toy engines, and the needful tools
Experiments to try.

MY CHILDREN.

Edward cares most for garden tools;
And Harry for a boat,
Which, rigged by Arthur's skilful hands,
Upon the pond will float.
But most my Children love the day
When with their parents dear,
They go to spend at Grandmamma's
The feast of the New Year.
For "no one's house is like Grandma's,"
The little ones all say;
And nowhere are such cake and wine,
And games of Christmas play.
They love to hear her gentle voice,
In tones so soft and clear,
Wish they may be good boys and girls
Throughout the coming year.
No gifts are half so prized as hers;
No stories please so well
As those that by the Christmas fire
They coax Grandma to tell.
But here I think my chat must end,
With just one closing line-
Do any of you chance to know
Children resembling mine ?
