CLASSICAL PEOPLE.

GLORIOUS warriors! such as Greece saw!
These are what Amy is learning to draw;
The horses with fury are pawing the air,
Where are they going? The girl does not care;
But they are difficult-dreadful-to draw,
Those mighty heroes that ancient times saw.

THE MEET.

THE huntsman's horn sounds,
Away go the hounds,
Away in the breezy morning.
The sport has begun,
They'll have a good run;
Will no one give Reynard warning?


This sweet little dame Now, who will be in
To the cover came, At the death, and win
By his Lordship duly attended; The brush that's the crown of the day?
And thus side by side This sweet little dame,
The two always ride Who a-hunting came,
Till the long day's hunt is ended. That honour will carry away.

But what in return would you give to me ?
A kiss I shall want at least once a dlay,

THE PRINCESS AND THE LAMB.

SHE said to this baa-lamb, "Oh, go away."
But the baa-lamb replied, "I want to stay
Oh, let me come under your tent, I pray."
"But she said, "No, no, my dolls are asleep.
And I'd rather not converse with a sheep.
Pray go away, and find little Bo-Peep."
So that baa-lamb gave a leap and a start,
And trotted away with a saddened heart,
To think that he and the Princess must part.
But she said, I'll let you come back some day,
When I and my dollies have gone away
Then you and your Bo-Pcep may come and play."

COURTING PEOPLE.

"DIo vo not love me, Cousin Bell?"
"I think I love my doll as well!"
But won't you be my wife ?" he said.
She sighed, and slowly shook her head.

"I 've bought a cottage, Cousin Bell,
And bought a little clock as well,
A looking-glass, and two arm-chairs,
And cups and saucers all in pairs."

"I love you dearly, Cousin Bell,
And I will love your doll as well."
"If you'll love Dolly all your life,
Then I will be your little wife!"

TALKATIVE PEOPLE.

ToyI, Toby, what is the news,
And what have you heard to-day?
"Cousin Judith, the strangest thing
Has happened over the way."

Toby, Toby, come now, be quick
What is it you have to tell?
"Cousin Judith, the leaves grow thick;
Some one else might hear as well."

Toby, Toby, don't tease me so-
Nobody's listening here.
"Cousin Judith, I think I know
That somebody else is near.

"The birds might listen when I talk;
That dog is listening too-
The very snail upon the walk
Might hear me as well as you."

They are so romantic, and funny, and old :
They look as if made to hide secrets under,
A great many more than we ever were told.

I think they 're exchanging secrets this minute,
By the way the forefinger 's held in the air.
Oh how I should like to know what is in it-


















They look so delightful, this bonneted pair !

The dog seems to understand all that they say ;
I never saw such an intelligent stare.
I really believe they will talk there all day;
So Good afternoon we will say to the pair.

THE PRINCESS AND ]HER GUARDIAN.

TI1E faithful hound with loving eyees
Marks where the little Princess lies;
She's safe beneath his guardian care--
To touch her, none will rashly dare.
What does she read ?-A Roman story
Of conquests grand and martial glory ?
Perhaps a tale of ancient Britain,
Or one about a little kitten;
In a charmed world she seems to be:
Sweet Princess, will you tell to me
The tale that keeps you there so still?
You are so kind, I think you will.

THE PRINCESS'S
GLEANINGS.

THE Princess has been in
the woods to-day,
To gather these crim- '
son berries.
Are they not lovely? oh,
are they not gay I
Just like the red sum-
mer cherries.

We all love to feast on,
the ruby fruit,
When the trees are
full of cherries; --.
And thus in the time of
the winter snow
The birds will feast
on the berries.

"SEASIDE PEOPLE.

SEAFARING PEOPLE.

il v name is Peter P'rettyman, I e knows the E'nglish alphabet;
And 1 'e just returned from sea, O! ou really never heard
With my walking-stick and bundle, A more sagacious creature
And a pocket-full of tea. Than this most accomplished
bird.

I 've brought a comic parrot home, I lead a very merry life,
That I taught when very young And I 'm off again to sea.
To whistle Rule Britannia," Who '11 turn into a little Tar,
And to speak the Chinese tongue. And go sailing off with me?

/ PATRIOTIC PEOPLE.

I HAVE not yet sailed very far,
._ But I dearly love the sea;
-"' I 'm but a very tiny Tar,
Yet a Nelson I would be.

S-He was the hero, great and bold,
Of many a brave sea-fight;
"" I will be like him when I'm old.
SMab, don't you think I'm right?

A boy should love his native land
When I go again to sea
SI 'll try, like Nelson, to command
,S "' A glorious Victory.

BEAUTIFUL pigeons with round bright eyes,
And plumage tinted with many dyes,
Flying down from your perch on the tree,
Is it the Princess you've come to see ?

She has brought something for you to eat.
Will it be cake, or sugar, or wheat ?
I cannot tell you which it will be,
Six sweet pigeons are waiting to see

THE PRINCESS GARDENING.

OUT of the water-pot comes a shower
To water the Princess's own sweet rose;
Bright sun, oh, shine on the lovely flower!-
Except May-blossom, the sweetest that grows.
The Princess loves all things pretty and gay,
She is Queen of the flowers to-day!

"I HAVE been away for a long, long walk,
"And I feel quite dull for want of a talk ;
For I can't converse with the dogs all day,
And indeed I shouldn't know what to say
Even to Juno, who walks by my side
With a stately step and an air of pride.
I watched the haymakers up on the hill,
And I have no doubt they 're busy there still.
I saw a green frog jump under a gate
And leap away at a very great rate;
And I saw a bird peep out of a tree,-
A great white owl,-but it didn't see me.
pl Lh' .1. -, d owl, aid frog cannot talk,
I AI i e home after my long, long walk.

,1 .Is it not a most lovely sight ?
"--, "But it is not for me," she said.
She gazed, with eyes wistful and sad,
A' t the pumpkins tempting and sweet
" ^i'''- Is there no one to make her glad,
. And to buy her some for a treat?
For she has not money enough
"r-. To purchase the gay-tinted fruit
It is only plain "garden stuff"
SH Her poor empty pocket will suit.
Vt- See! the pzg does not wait to buy,
SBut he helps himself from the stall;
"Oh, piggie, go back to your sty,
And do not eat carrots and all!

\VHISPERING PEOPLE.

DICKERY dock, come listen to me,
I have a secret for you:
I found a nest in an apple-tree
\Vith six little eggs so blue.

On these blue c s a little bird sat,
With such merry bright black eyes;
Promise you won't tell Tabby the cat,
Lest she takes it by surprise.


"And I have a secret, Margery Ann,
S But it's only meant for me,
I'11 let you guess it though, if you caln;
S/ It's in my pocket, you see!"

REFLECTIVE PEOPLE,

(WHAT GERADA DREAMT.)

I WAS standing quite still in a midsummer dream
,On the banks of a wonderful fairyland stream,
SWhen I dreamt that a grand knight emerged from
,' -., a- lad-. y ;- .- w-i.a-a d ...... w ,a -


















the wave,
. ;.- I











With most glittering armour and banner so brave
And he said, I have come from the land of romance



I have come to look out for a Queen for the Fays,
For a lady with stately and beautiful ways
And you are the prettiest young maiden I've seen,
Oh, come with me then, and be crowned Fairy Queen!"
But I said, "I prefer to remain on the bank,
Not to live under water for titles and rank"
But 'twas no sooner said, than the knight swam away,
With a gleam and a splash and a shower of spray.
And it's oh for my dream of the sweet knight so
brave,
It was only a ish that leapt out of the wave

FASHIONABLE PEOPLE.

HERE is Fairyland in disguise,-
'T is a fancy dress ball, you say,
Smiling faces, and laughing eyes,
And costumes old-fashioned and gay.

'Here is a Watteau shepherdess '.
VIf lAnd a nice little Shakespeare man, ,
Powdered hair, and wonderful hats,
And many a fluttering fan.

Dance to the music; laugh, and sing,
Oh! the merry night speeds away;
At twelve the great church bells will ring,
For to-morrow is Christmas Day.

S THE PRINCESS SHOPPING.

THE little May-blossom went shopping one day
To buy many nice things for giving away;
There was but one present remaining unsold
When the Princess found out she had spent all her gold.

So the purchase was left till another fine day,
And here is the May-blossom just on her way,
Her purse freshly stocked with gold new and bright,-
No wonder the little dog begs at the sight.

The donkey is waiting, saddled and ready,
Looking so grave, and knowing, and steady;
On his great hairy brow is a tiny spray
Of the Princess's favourite flower of May.

THE PRINCESS' CHARITY.

'TWIXT palace and cottage, oh, what a
space!
But here is a fair golden link;
A presence to cheer the homeliest place:
Ah! who can it be, do you think?

A basket of grapes and delicate things,
And a message of hearty cheer,
The Princess Victoria often brings;
