PRIDE AND SIMPLICITY.



Two little birds, one summer's day,
Paused by a stream a word to say,
Each had but left its hungry brood
A moment gone, in quest of food.

One bird had built its mossy nest
Upon the ground, as pleased it best

The other one, with notions high,

Had sought a spot more near the sl.

And there, among the shining leave-
That glanced beneath the cottage c...
Proud looks and words it would best..

Upon its humbler friends below.

", You silly thing!" this proud bird said,
< "I hear that you your nest have made

Can see you as it glances by.

"Pooh, pooh!" the other cried, "Pooh, pooh!"
And toss'd its head as off it flew
Straight to its nest, where soon it sung
A song of praise beside its young.

It praised its own sleek back and breast,
It praised its young, it praised its nest,
And said, Ah! all who pass me by
Must see how great a thing am I."

So busy was it praising self,
It did not see the sly young elf
Who clambered up the cottage wall, .
To seize its nest and young ones all.

Ah! bitterly, when all too late,
This foolish bird bewailed its fate,
And wished, with many tears and sighs,
Like its poor friend, it had been wise.

The sin of pride, the love of show,
Wrought all this mischief, all this woe; '
How different had been the end,
Iad it been humble, like its friend

WEET, WEET, WEET!




WEET, weet, weet!

Calling for your food;

Wect, weet, weet!

Mother's in the wood,

Picking up the dainties

All for you to eat-

Grub, and worm, and chickweed:

Weet, sweet, wect!


Weet, weet, weet!

Mother's coming now;

Wect, weet, weet!

Sitting on the bough;

Now you'll all be happy,

Here is something sweet,

Something nice and dainty:

Weet, sweet, weet!

SING, SING.



SING, sing, beautiful bird,
Fling thy heart's fulness afar on the wind,
Over the hills let thy music be heard,
Down in the dells let the roses be stirred,
Lily and buttercup weep themselves blind,
Full of thy tenderness, beautiful bird.


Sing, sing, mother so proud,
Over thy little ones safe in the nest;
Sing to thy happy mate, shout it aloud;
Tell it to earth and sky, sunshine and cloud;
Never was anything ever so blest,
All on a dewy morn, mother so proud.

Ioir, hop,
On the tree top,
Carefully, carefully, little ones all,
Lest, little birdies, you stumble and fall.



Wait, wait, .
Patiently yet,
You will be bigger and stronger one day,
Then you can chirrup and flutter away. ,

Peep, peep,
Slily, and creep,
Out of your cradle soft, baby so small,
Carefully, too, lest some evil befall.

GOOD BYE.

GOOD bye, good bye, good bye,"
Say the little birds one and all,
Ere they flutter away,
At break of day,
From their home on the tree-top tall.
Good bye, good bye, good bye,
Ere over the hills and far away,
We fly, we fly, we fly."

#s p" Good bye, good bye, good bye,
\, Small home we have loved so long;
We will think of you,
And our parents true,
Wherever we sing our song.
\ - Good bye, good bye, good bye."
And over the hills and far away,
i' ./' They fly, they fly, they fly.

Their mother sat watching,
In silence and fear,
Sat watching and waiting
Their footsteps to hear;
She thought of her darlings,
She looked at the clock,
Expecting each moment
To hear their glad knock.
But, minute by minute,
The hours sped away.
And still came no tidings
Of those gone astray;
At last, when no longer
Her tears she could keep,
She went to their father,
And woke him from sleep.
" Oh, husband oh, husband !"
In anguish she said,
" Our three precious darlings
I know must be dead;
They never would leave us,
Or stay from us so,
Unless they were lying
Beneath the cold snow."

Deep, deep in the forest,
Beneath a huge tree,
They found the three brothers-
Sad picture to sec-
Each clasping the other
In loving embrace,
While death seemed to shadow
Each poor frozen face.

But quickly and safely,
Straight off to the farm,
All helpless, they bore them
Away from all harm,
Where soon, by God's blessing,
The good farmer's wife,
With care and with kindness,
Restored them to life.

The joy of their parents
No tongue, if it tried,
Could tell you the half of;
They laughed, and they cried;
Their three precious darlings
They clasped, and they kissed,
And good farmer Dawson
A thousand times bless'd.



;-- ,;
















,J.`



And when to the farmer
The story was told,
Of how the three brothers
Went out in the cold,
To work for their father
When he lay so ill,
Towards them with pity
His bosom did fill.

And so from that evening
They all were made glad,
For in the kind farmer
A true friend they had;
And long they lived happy,
But never, I know,
Forgot the sad moments
They passed in the snow.

WHAT DOES THE COCK SAY



WIIAT does the cock say every morn,
Crowing so loud and shrill ?
You may hear the sound of his lusty h.. i
Far over the distant hill.



" Get up, get up, get up," he cries;
Awake, awake, awake;
The sun is gilding the eastern skies,
And the day begins to break.

"Get up, and the daisies will kiss thy I._t.
The lark sing over thy head;
Far better be out with the flowers so .... t,
Than wasting the hours i I1... I'"

The naked feet
In the busy street
Is a sad, sad sight to bear;
The pallid cheek,
And the limbs so weak,
That wither for want of air.

But no such sight,
By day or night,
Comes here for to make you sigh;
Each face you meet
Has a look so sweet,
And a smile as you pass it by.

In winter time,
Or summer's prime,
Therc's joy alike to be found,

ONLY A BABY SMALL.



ONLY a baby small,
Dropt from the skies;
Only a laughing face,
Two sunny eyes;
Only two cherry lips,
One chubby nose;
Only two little hands,
Ten little toes;
Only a golden head,
Curly and soft;
Only a tongue that wags,
Loudly and oft;
Only a little brain,
Empty of thought;
Only a little heart,
Troubled with nought;
Only a tender flower,
Sent us to rear;
Only a life to love,
While we are here.

MARY'S PET.


CousIN Jack, the sailor lad,
Gave to sister Mary,

Just before he went away,
Such a sweet canary;
You should see the tiny thing
Trim its wings so neatly;
You should hear it sing a song,
Prettily and sweetly.


And so tame it is that she
In her hand can hold it;

Yesterday I'm sure it did
Everything she told it:
Pecked the crumbs from out her mouth,
Hopped upon her shoulder,

Back upon her hand again;
Never bird was bolder.




-- ..:

:" : i, <

And whenever Mary speaks,

Iow its eyes will glisten,

As it cocks its head aside

Wonder how they'd like it
If Dick were to shoot at it
.. With a gun and strike it.

SWhen he comes, a polly;
One that talks and whistles, too,
Oh won't that be jolly !
I'll be kind and good to it,
Never plague or tease it,
But do everything that's right-
All I can to please it.

When they big and bigger grew,
They would leap and climb
Up upon the kennel top,
Barking all the time.

If a stranger came anigh,
What a noise they made !
Showing all their shiny teeth,
Making him afraid.

Once a neighbour's naughty dog,
Spotted, black and tan,
With a tail and ears so long,
Bigger far than Fan,

One of Fanny's pretty pups
Tried to take away,
While poor Fan was sleeping sound
On a bed of hay;

But so loud the puppies l.., 1 i..I
Fan woke in a trice,
And the naughty dog shl. c.uI l!t-
Oh! but that was nice!



And she shook him sore .onil Id:n..
Till he howled with pain .
Such a shaking as he got
He ne'er had again.



Yet with little children aill
She was kind and gay
Cocked her ears and wa_. 1,.I- Ii t n
When a word they'd .;, ,



Loved to poke her busy ii...
In each little hand ;
Gave a paw, too, and ob.i .l
Every just command.

Si .lyly flung his stick;
S. l'.ia. would bark and leap with joy,

'1 ii.. she would with all her pups
1:. 11 upon the grass,

Up the branches of the trees ,
After them they'd run;
While their master, honest man,
Laughed to see the fun.

Happy, happy lives they lived,
Loving master, too,
Never fighting o'er their food,
As so many do.

So Fan and her puppies four
Master never sold,
But he kept them warm and snug
Till they all grew old.

S But Robin is thinking, and making a plan,
"And longing and wishing that he were a man,
To comfort his mother, to soothe her grey hairs,
To lighten with kindness her sorrows and cares.

B ut the wood is behind him. before him he sees,
-.i: All dim in the distance, the cottage and trees,
"And knows, by the light streaming out at the
door,
' ", His mother is waiting to kiss him once more.

"And Robin's dear mother can tell he is near,
The sound of his footstep falls sweet on her car;
And her bosom is thrilling with pleasure and joy,
As she blesses her God for her dutiful boy.

Every one,
They seemed to thank her

For what she'd done.

Here is Lizzie,
The darling child,
Who went to gather
The florets wild,
Bright as the sunshine,

Sweet as the rose,
Loved and happy

Every morning, with the lark
They are up and out,
You may hear their merry tongues
As they run about.

Come along a step or so
Higher up the wall,
There is Mary busy, too,
Milking in the stall.
Dolly turns as if to say,
Looking slyly down,
" You make butter with my milk,
Cheeses, large and brown."

Hear the cackle of the hens,
They have laid their eggs;
See the cock, how proud he is,
Strutting on his legs;
See the swarms of little birds
Round the stable door,
All to get the oats and beans
Scattered on the floor.

Popping in and out,
Underneath the mossy stones-
Minnow, roach, and trout;
Funny things he thinks they are,
Darting here and there,
Drinking water all the day,
Living without air.

Willie, mother's smallest pet,
Happy little boy!
Live thy pleasant country life,
Full of peace and joy.
Love thy parents, brothers, too
Love the God above;
Little hearts are big enough
Everything to love.

PRETTY Mary, why so sad ?
Everything around is glad;
Brothers, sisters, all are out,
Roaming in the fields about,
All among the bees and flowers,
Through the bright and sunny hours.
Have you idle been to-day-
Cross and naughty at your play ?
Is the lesson still unsaid-
Promise broken that you made ?
If a wrong you've done, my dear,
Bend the knee, and God will hear;

Shyly peep about.

"My sweet little maiden, please follow me
straight,
This palace you see is my own;
And I, too, am king of this wondrous realm,
Where never a mortal is known:
My subjects will think I'm committing a sin,
But still you shall peep at the wonders within."

So he blew on a horn that hung under his cloak-
The doors of the palace flew wide ;
And hundreds and hundreds of queer little folks,
Within them dear Hetty espied:
Some lay as if sleeping, some danced in a ring,
But none of them seemed half so tall as the king.



" Now, pray, pay attention," the fairy king said;
"Those creatures, so happy and fair,
Are just like the good thoughts that dwell in



the heart,
Flinging sunshine around everywhere:
Wherever they are there is brightness and joy,
No matter how heavy or dull is the sky.



[ 69 ]



''Ij














"Those wily black fellows, chained up to the wall,
Like bad thoughts, we keep them apart;
We never give heed to their slanderous tongues,
Or take them at all to our heart:
The joy in our bosoms would soon fade away,
If we were to listen to aught they would say.

"Now, Hetty, my dear, when you go back to
earth,
You'll think of the sight you have seen;
Let Good be the fairy that dwells in your heart,
And you be his good little Queen :
And so you'll be happy"-but here, with a
scream,
Dear Hetty woke up; it was all a dream !

Welcome you in every sound.

MOON, SO ROUND AND YELLOW.



MOON, so round and yellow,
Looking from on high,
How I love to see you
Shining in the sky.
Oft and oft I wonder,
When I see you there,
How they get to light you,
Hanging in the air:



Where you go at morning,
When the night is past,
And the sun comes peeping
O'er the hills at last.
Some time I will watch you



Slyly overhead,
When you think I'm sleeping
Snugly in my bed.

By the fireside, musing with brow of care:
What is he dreaming of, idle boy-
Lesson, or play, or cake, or toy.

He looked from out his window high,



And something black he saw,
That stood beside his cottage door,
And scraped it with its paw.

With speedy step the old man came,
The door he opened wide ;
And panting in the howling storm,
Poor Rover he espied.
" Come in, good dog, come in," he said,
"And tell me why you grieve."
Poor Rover looked up in his face,
And pulled him by the sleeve.



The shepherd took his staff in hand,
And Rover led the way,
And up the giddy heights they went,
To where young Colin lay.
They found him lying stiff and cold;
The good man raised his head.
He breathed, he murmured Rover's name;
Thank God, he was not dead!

The shepherd bore him to his cot,
And well he nursed him there;
And Colin soon had cause to bless
The good man for his care.
And Rover now is old and grey,
But Colin loves him still,
And ne'er forgets the night he saved
His life upon the hill.

"Ah! long she clung about his neck,
And oft she bade him stay;



And many were the tears she shed,
The morn he went away.

" But Lubin kissed her fears away,
And smiled to hear her sigh;
Poor boy the smile was on his lip,
The tear was in his eye.

" The neighbours prayed, God-speed him well
And help him on his way;
His little comrades, one and all,
Shed many tears that day.



"And sad poor Lubin must have been,
From all his friends to part;
His mother's gentle looks and words
Lay heavy on his heart.

" 'Twas night when, tired and sore of foot,
He entered London town;
And by a mansion, gay and bright,
Bewildered sat him down.

SAILOR BOY AND HIS MOTHER.


HARK to the thunder!
List to the rain ;
See the fierce lightning
Flashing again!

See at yon window,
Gleaming afar,
Shines a pale taper,
Like a lone star !

There a lone mother,
Bending the knee,
Prays for her darling,
Far, far at sea.

O God, in heaven,
Hear thou her prayer;
Still thou the tempest,
Calm her despair!



I y94













Out on the waters,
"Where the winds roar,
Toss'd by the billows,
Miles from the shore;

In his rude hammock,
Rocked by the deep,
Lies a young sailor
Buried in sleep.

Sweetly he's smiling,
Dreaming of home,
Far in green England,
Over the foam.



She who is praying,
Stands by him now-
"Parting his tresses,
Kissing his brow.



God send him safely
To her again !
God grant her watching
Be not in vain!

WHEN THE MOON IS SHINING.



WIEN the moon is shining
Brightly in the sky,
Little birds lie snugly
In their nests on high;
Not a wing they flutter,
Not a chirp is heard,-
Oh to sleep as soundly
As a little bird.

Little lambs that briskly
Run, and skip, and play,
All among the meadows,
Through the sunny day,
Rest within the sheepfold,
Each beside its dam,-
Oh to be as happy
As a little lamb.

Watches little children

\When they go to rest;

Watches in the darkness,

Watches in the light;

With the sun at morning,

And the moon at night.

Softly you creep again,
Into the bowers,
Giving to earth
Music and mirth;
Gilding with gladness the life-laden hours.
Beautiful sun, beautiful sun!
Come to my pillow white,
With thy first beam of light,
Beautiful sun!
