TI.E TEA PARTY.
Vo-i see merry Phillis, that dear little maid,
Has invited Belinda to tea;
S^fi Her nice little garden, is shaded by trees,
W\'hat pleasanter place could there be
There's a cake full of plums, some strawberries too,
And the table, is set on the green ;
SThe carpet is brilliant, \\ith daisies and grass,
Could a prettier picture be seen ?
A black-bird is singing, high up on the tree.
His music falls sweet on the air;
And softly it blends, with the prattle so sweet,
Of the two little maidens so fair!
SOCKS AND SHOES.
As I stepped ouLt to hear the news,
I met two maids, in socks and shoes.
One. in a coat of blue \was seen,
And one was dressed in bottle green.
And so they toddled up the street.
Two pretty maids, as you would meet.
With hats so round, and fair to %iew,
And feather white, and riband blue.
T\,o glen ear-rings Fanny wore,
While Bertha held a muff before :
An- ,o they smiled, and softly talked,
As up the street, thc-y slowly walked.
THREE old ladies, lean and fat,
Met to have a pleasant chat;
Down upon three chairs they sat,
Tell me what you think of that ?
Each one brought, a tabby" there,
Soft and silken, plump and fair;
Pretty, purring, pussies, rare,
Guarding each her mistress' chair!
Chairs, and cats, and gossips three,
Waiting for their cups of tea;
Tell me darling, tell to me-
How many tabbies" here you see?
FANNY AND WILLIE.
LITTLE Fanny wears a hat, Fair, and like a lady, she-
Like her ancient Grannie." Neither proud, nor silly;
Willie's hoop was given him, Likes to take her morning walk,
By his sister Fanny. Out, with brother Willie.
WHAT BESSIE \WAS READING.
* BENEATH the Lilies-tall, white garden Lilies- Ere long, a Prince came riding in the sunshine
The Princess slept, a charmed sleep always : A ind just s\waed the Lilies to and fro
For, ever were the fairy Bluebells ringing, It woke the Princess, tho' the Bluebell music,
^Forever thro' the Night, and thro' the Day. Kept ringing, ringing, sleepily and low.
"MARGERY BROWN! Margery Brown!
Why are you standing, atop of the hill ?"
"Oh! I am looking at London town,
To see if the chimneys, are smoking still!"
" Margery Brown Margery Brown !
Why are you listening, listening there?"
"Oh! I list to the bells of London town,
And the voices of men, and of maidens fair."
"Margery Brown Margery Brown !
Why are you crying, crying so sore ?"
" Oh! I had a lover in London town,
An now I shall see him, no more, no more !"
IN THE GREEN MEADOW.
IN the green meadow, Three little maidens,
The br.-.:,k ripples clear; Like birds on the wing;
S.:.fi. in the sunshine. Fair as the morning dew,
The daisies appear. Merrily sing.
See, hc.\w the buttercups, Blow little breeze
Brighly. unl':ld; On the hill-top and plain;
Hid in the shining grass, Play in the sunshine,
\'ell:.'. as g,'l.. And blow off the rain.
THE MAN IN THE MOON.
" 'Tis true, Johnny Butcher, 'tis true, "And sometimes, they say, he comes down,
Don't think I am playing you tricks; With a bagful of candies and toys;
There's a man, and a dog in the Moon, And then, Johnny Butcher look out,
And he's cross, as a bundle of sticks I" For he takes away all the bad boys I"

THE VILLAGE WALK.
As I walked through,
The village street;
The steeple bells,
And baby nestled,
In my arms;
And clear, the birds
And sweet in every
The lovely flowers,
But not so sweet,
As baby's arms;
Which round my neck,
Nor half so bright,
As baby's eyes;
With love, and joy,
So brimming !
FIVE LITTLE SISTERS,
FIVE little sisters, walking in a row,
Isn't that a pretty way, for little girls to go ?
Each has a round hat, and each a furry muff;
And each has a little coat, of green and silken stuff.
Five little marigolds, standing in a row,
Isn't that a pretty way, for marigolds to grow ?
Each with a green stalk, nodding ev'ry one;
And a yellow flow'r bright, shining in the Sun.
In Go-cart so tins. So on this fine morning,
My Sister I drew. We're out once again;
I've promised t.o dra, her, To gather sweet flowers,
The wide %\%:,rld through. That grow in the lane.
We ha\rin't vet strt.d. And sister, and brother,
I o.in it v.ith s:rr:.. ; And I, as you see;
Because our trip alT'. Are joyous and happy,
Is leit till to-torr.. As children should be I
SOME Geese went out a-walking,
To breakfast, and to dine;
They hissed, and cackled noisily,
And numbered, four from nine.
A dame went out a-walking,
A cross, and crabbed crone;
She said, "I wish that all you geese,
Were starved to skin and bone !"
But still they kept a-cackling,
With harsh, and hissing tone;
And so I left these noisy geese,
"And still more noisy crone
GOING TO TEA.
0,i..'Ilr going out to tea to-day,
Be careful what you do;
Let all accounts that I shall hear,
Be pleasant ones, of you.
Don't spill your tea. or gnaw your bread,
And don't tease one another;
And Fanny mustn't talk too much,
Or quarrel with her brother.
Say If you please." and Thank you,"
Come home at eight o'clock ;
And Ethel, pray be careful, dear,
And do not tear your frock.
Now mind your manners, children five,
Attend to \hat I say ;
And then perhaps. I'll let. you go,
Again, another day.

POOR Dickey's dead The bell we toll,
And lay him in the deep, dark hole.
The sun may shine, the clouds may rain,
But Dick will never pipe again!
ITi-_ quilt \will be as sw\cit as oLrs.--
B-right buttercups, and cutckoo fI11:'L'.
UP you go, Shuttlecocks, ever so high!
When you get up, in the sunny blue sky;
Why do you fall again, Shuttlecocks, why?
Up you go, Shuttlecocks, flying so far!
Rising and falling, how pretty you are:
Light as the thistle-down, bright as the stars.
OVER THE WALL.
OVER the wall, we are looking, and why ?
The King, and his courtiers, will soon pass by;
The Queen and her ladies, will ride this way,
And that's why we look from the wall to-day.
All mounted on horseback, so gallant, and free,
The King, and the Queen, and the Court you will see
In silver and gold, will the courtiers appear,
And that's why we're waiting so patiently here.
With waving of banners, and beating of drums,
And sounding of trumpets, so gaily they come;
So fathers, and mothers, and maidens and all,
We're laughing, and looking, from over the wall.

SILLY Tommy Toddyhigh,
Once took his Sister Prue;
And went to play upon the bridge,
To show what he could do.
Then, to frighten Sister Prue,
He said, "now see me fly;"
He tried, and nearly broke his neck
Did Tommy Toddyhigh.
Jacky raised him by the leg,
While Tom did sadly cry;
He wished he hadn't left the bridge,
Did Tommy Toddyhigh.

.-. HICGGLED'V, riggledy se how thl run!
Hopperty, Popperty, what is the fun
Has the Sun. or the Mloon, tumbled into the Sea ?
What it the matter, now till unto me.
HigglcJy, r'iggleady, hi':\ can I tell ?
Hopperty, I'opp:-rty, hark to the bell!
Big ones, and little ones, scamper away,
For nobody knows, \hat wiill happen to-day !
How shall I travel to Somewhere town?
Oh! up in the morning early;
Over the tiles, and the chimney-pots,
That is the way, quite clearly.
And which is the door, to Somewhere town ?
Oh! up in the morning early;
The round red Sun, is the door I'm sure,
That is the way quite clearly.
And what shall I see, in Somewhere town ?
Oh! up in the morning early;
I'll see the place, where the Moon goes down,
And the Stars, are born, quite clearly!
ON THE SHORE.
THE Sea is calm, The wind may fall,
The Moon is up; The wind may rise;
The pretty boats, And you may go,
Are on the wing. Or you may stay.
Come let us join But you will come,
Our hands about; If you are wise;
And on the sand, And dance with us,
We'll dance and sing. The hours away.
PIPE THEE HIGH.
Pirr thee high. and pipe thee low,
Let the little feet go faster:
Blow your penny trumpet-blow;
Well done, little master!
Pipe thee high, and pipe thee low,
How she dances, light and airy;
Take her hand, as white as snow,
Dainty, little fairy !
THREE FUNNY BONNETS.
POPPERTY, Peggy, Dressed in their bonnets,
And Polly you see; They thought it such fun;
Out with their playthings, To run thro' the showers,
A picture of glee. Or play in the sun.
Three funny bonnets, But naughty boys often,
On three little girls ; Would cry out in play;
Pinafores tidy, Oh! here's the three Grannies,
But never a curl. Out walking to-day !
OH! roll away. Oh roll away!
XAs far and last, as you can run;
W'r however can the fastest go,
Will surely be the v inning one.
Now, helter-skelter-off you roll!
But Fanny stubs her little toe;
And sadly falls upon the ground,
While swiftly on the others go.
But soon, she'll get upon her feet,
And with the others race away;
And if she doesn't beat them now,
Perhaps she will another day I
THREE LITTLE BOYS.
"WHERE are you going, you three little boys,
And where are you going to-day?"
"We're going to look for a sweet apple tree,
And in the green meadow to play."
"For what are you longing, you three little boys,
And what would you like to eat ?"
"We would like some apples, and gingerbread,
And a fine big drum to beat."
"What will you give me, you three little boys,
In exchange for these good things ?"
"A long-tailed kite, a top, and a ball,
And a little brown bird, that sings."
"But that will not do; you little rogues three,
I'll have something better than that;
Some pretty green snails, you must seek till you find,
And bring them to me, in your hats."
OH! ring the bells, Oh ring the bells!
We bid you all, Good morning;"
Give thanks we pray, our flowers are gay,
And fair for your adorning.
Oh ring the bells, Oh! ring the bells !
Good friends, accept our greeting;
Where we have been, the woods are green,
And fast the Spring is fleeting.
Oh ring the bells, Oh ring the bells!
For this fair time of Maying ;
We blossoms bring, and while we sing,
Oh hark to what we're saying.
. :. : :::* '* `: ".' 44::., ; : : .... .
Oh! ring the bells, Oh ring the bells !
And while they're sweetly chiming;
Our flowers so gay, well give away,
With words of merry rhyming.
Oh ring the bells, Oh ring the bells !
We must not long be staying;
For May has come, and May will go,
While we are here delaying.
Then ring the bells, Oh! ring the bells!
We'll sing a song with any;
May every year, bring you good cheer,
And each of us a penny.
THE LITTLE FAT GOBLIN.
THIS little fat Goblin, Then laughed little Goblin
A terrible sinner ; A merry, ha! ha!
Stole cabbages daily, "Before me he catches,
For breakfast, and dinner. He'll run very far."
The farmer looked angry, And little fat Goblin,
And scolded in vain ; Ran off from the farm;
" That rogue has been stealing, Taking a cabbage-head,
My cabbage again." Under each arm!
WE SAW A SHIP.
WE saw a ship, that sailed the sea.
It left us as the Sun went down.
The white birds flew, and followed it,
To town-to London town
Right sad were we, to stand alone,
And see it sail, so far away;
And yet we knew, some ship would come,
Some other ship, some other day.
It seemed to sink, beneath the wave,
Until it vanished from our eyes;
And with the Sun went down at last,
Just as the yellow Moon did rise!
THE PROUD GIRL.
YE-, that's the ,girl that struts about,
So very proud-so very proud !
Her do; is quite as proud as she;
And both are very wrong to be
So proud-so very proud!
And Jane, and Willy laugh at her,
Because she is so 'very proud.
Says Ine, lMy stars! just see her walk.
Says Will, now. can the doggie talk ?
He looks so \cry proud !"

HERE'S Tommy, out upon the green,-
The sweet and pleasant Spring has come
He sees the birds about him flit,
And hears the bees, with merry hum.
He's looking at the speckled hen,
And says the little chicks are fun ;"
Hle loves to see them scratch for seeds,
And round about their mother run.
He hears the soaring, merry lark,
Sin. s wcetly in the distant sky;
.\nd thinks,-a bird he'd like to be,
.\nd uith the pretty songster fly.
Now, the rain has passed away,
Fast the storm is flying;
Pretty Patty, patient waits,
While the grass is drying.
"Shall I sing ?" says Robin red,
"Shall I bloom ?" says flower;
"Shall I come ?" says shining Sun,
"Shall I rain?" says shower.
"Sing your song, my pretty bird,
Bloom, my lovely flower;
Come again, my pretty Sun,
And dry the naughty shower !"
THE GARDEN WALL.
LITTLE Miss Patty, and Master Paul,
Have found two snails, on the garden wall.
" These snails," says Paul, "how slow they walk
A great d,.al slower, than we can talk.
lakec haste, Mr. Snail, go faster I pray;
In a ract: with our tongues, you'd be beaten to-day."
Thliin .a.ys Miss Patty, in accents mild

A BUTCHER'S boy, and a Baker's boy,

"Now please to walk my way."
Said the Butchers boy, to the Baker's boy,
My trade's the best in ton ;"
" If yot say that." says the Baker's boy,
"Ill have to knock you down."
Says the Butcher's boy, to the Baker's boy,

And I think before you knock /.', down,
I'd better trip up j'.i /"

FISHING ON THE BRIDGE.
THE finest, biggest fish you see, We'll take him home, and have a dish,
Will be the trout, that's caught by me; Of crispy, juicy, buttered fish
But if the beauty will not bite, So whether small, or large' he be,
Then we may hook, a little mite. We'll have at least, a fish for tea.
PRINCE FINIKIN and his Mamma,
Sat sipping their bohea;
"Good gracious," said his highness,
What girl is this I see ?"
S"M..sr cr-riiinly, she cannot be, Then Finikin's Mamma replied,
A n.iire :. our town." "Dear Prince, it seems to me;
And then he looked at his Mamma, She looks, as if she'd like to drink,
And set his tea-cup down. A cup of my Bohea !"
But Dolly, simply looked at them, So Finikin poured out the tea,
And did not speak a word; And gave her currant pie;
She has no voice," said Finikin, Then said unto his dear Mamma,
"It's really absurd." "How kind a Prince am Ii"

MY HOUSE IS RED.
" MY house is red, my little house,-
A happy child am I;
And whether I'm at work or play,
The time goes swiftly by.
I have a tree, a bright green tree,
To shade me from the Sun;
And under it, I often sit,
When all my work is done.
My little basket, then I fill,
With Hazel-nuts so brown;
With flowers bright, I cover them,
And trip away to town.
I take them to the ladies there,
Who give me half a crown;
And then I buy some currant-cake,
.And back I come from town."

THREE LITTLE GIRLS.
THREE little girls, sat on a rail,
Sat on a rail,
Sat on a rail;
Three little girls, sat on a r.il.
One fine hot day in September.
What did they say, on that ine day ?
On that fine day,
On that fine day;
What did they say, on that ine, d\y ?
That fine hot day in September.
They talked about the crows and c.:rn,
The crows, and corn,
The crows, and corn:
They talked about, the crows and corn,
That fine hot day in September !
O \what an ugly, queer old man!
The neighbors call him crazy Dan.
He sometimes breaks the children's toys,
And loves to scare the girls and boys.
He's caught poor Billy, as you see,
Who seems in sad distress to be;
And cries as loud, as cry he can,
And kicks the shins of crazy Dan!
Old Dan, enjoys his loud alarms,
And holds him, in his skinny arms;
But soon he'll set poor Billy free,
And let him scamper home to tea.
RING the bell, ring!
Hurrah for the King!
The dunce fell into the pool, Oh!
The groom and the cook,
Fished him out with a hook;
For he was going to school, Oh!
Then he piped his eye,
And shook himself dry;
And looked like a terrible fool, Oh!
So now let us dance,
And give him a chance;
To sit on the dunce's stool, Oh!
