YOU are thoughtful this morning, my gallant old
As you sit by my side, ever watching afar.
Are you thinking, like me, of the dark river bank,
Where you carried me, dripping, the day that I sank
In the pool where the lilies are blooming so yellow?
You saved my life then, you good, noble old fellow.
And you, little Dick, that I found almost dying,
By the road-side so dusty and hot you were lying--
But now you rest here, with your ribbon bedecked,
You've forgotten that time, and its pains, I expect.
You are two faithful friends, and as long as you
You shall have every comfort your Mistress can

OH, Rover! Rover! Come hither to me!
Your wounded paw I fain would see!
Tenderly hold it, George, and I
To bind poor Rover's wound will try!
There's nothing we would not do for you
Rover, Rover, so gallant and true;
For while by night you watch,---by day
You're always ready with us to play!

THE Doe is a creature fair to see,
And oh, it will so gentle be
If thou wilt kindly watch its need,
And teach it from thy hand to feed!
The Doe is a creature fair to see,
And it loves to roam the grassy lea,
Or to climb the mountain's rugged steep,
Where the wandering breezes never sleep!

THE SPARROWS' MORNING VISIT.
GLAD to see you, little bird;
'Twas your pretty chirps I heard;
What, did you intend to say,
"Give us something this cold day?"
That I will, and plenty too;
All these crumbs I saved for you;
Don't be frightened---here's a treat;
I will wait and see you eat.

THE PET LAMB.
THIS is our Lamb, our darling Lamb,
With a coat as pure and as white as snow;
He follows wherever we lead the way,
Our slightest sign he seems to know:
For we shelter him still from bush and brier,
And carefully all his wants supply;
And hence, as he crops his morning meal,
He looks at us both with a loving eye!
OH, Brownie, our Pony, a gallant young steed,
Will carry us gaily o'er hill, dale, and mead;
So sure is his foot and so steady his eye,
That even our baby to mount him might try!
We haste to his stable to see him each day,
And feed him with oats or the sweetest of hay;
We pat his rough coat, and we deck him with flowers---
Oh, never was seen such a Pony as ours.
