BECKY LONGNOSE.

THEY call her Becky Longnose, I think a right good whipping,
Longnose, Longnose, Whipping, whipping,
They call her Becky Longnose, To set them all a skipping,
This group of naughty boys. Would cure these saucy boys.













"Has brother Tommy
Pulled your hair,
And made your
Ruffled temper rise ?
Or punched a hole
In Dolly's face,
To look behind
Her winking eyes?


Or has the wicked
Pussy caught
Your pretty pet
Canary bird?
Or have you in
The spelling class,
Contrived to miss
A crooked word?"
A BABY SORROW.

COME here Come here! The little maid
My weeping lass; Then looked at me,
And truly tell And answered with
Your griefs to me. A trembling lip;
Why do you rub "They dress me up
That woeful face, In clothes so tight,
And sob and cry I haven't room
So bitterly ? Enough to skip /"

















































BY THE SEA.

BABY, would you like to be But, my baby, you must know
Out upon the shining sea, When the stormy winds do blow,
Rocking in a tiny boat And the angry waves arise
Where the pretty sea-birds float ? High as mountains to the skies
While the little clouds at play, Then my little baby's head
Idle all the summer day. Better far, would be in bed.
Idle all the summer day. ~Better far, would be in bed.






























BABY'S FIRST STEPS.

WITH soft blue eyes Dear baby Nell,
Like summer skies, To mamma tell
And dewy mouth-a budding rose, The secret of those tender arts,
What tender wiles Whose gentle pow'r,
And sunny smiles, With ev'ry hour,
Dlne- Bahy's ev'ry act dicln-e I But binds vnu c1nzer to niur hearts

AN ODD BONNET.

SEE this odd old maiden lady And the pretty maids who meet her,
Walking with a stately grace. Turn, with merry smiles to see,
On her head an ancient bonnet Such a strange old-fashioned bonnet
With a purple bow upon it, With so queer a riband on it,
And a little dog behind her, And the little dog so ugly
Fastened to a silken string. With his tail, a curly ring.

















































Come down at once, you naughty boy, r when you get to school,











You'll have another kind of ride, upon the dunce's stool."
.ASTIDE upon a 'swinging branch our little Bertie see,






























I- -- - -- - -





THE RUNNING BOYS.

"WHERE are you running, so fast, so fast? Where is this land, so bright, so bright,
And what are you going to see ? And how shall I find the way ?"
And when are you coming to town again ? "'Tis over the hills, where the sun goes
Now answer, my little boys three." down,
And night never follows the day!"
Then up in a chorus, so sweet, so sweet,
The little boys spoke unto me : "What will you do, for sleep, for sleep,
"We're going to live, where they have no My three little boys, I pray ?"
school, Why should we sleep, in a place like that,
In the Land of the Gingerbread tree!" Where nothing goes on but play?"

You three little boys, come back, come back!
Ere the sun shall hide his beams ;
The land you seek, is the land of Nod,"
Where you go in your baby dreams."


































THE DOLLIES' HOLIDAY.

A MERRY group A pretty sight! While Baby May is holding two,
Of dollies gay and children bright. And Bess has all that she can do.
They're out this pleasant summer day, With busy hands, as you may guess,
To pass the time in joyous play. To cut and fit her dolly's dress.

See Bell and Jessie, how they talk! Oh, precious hours of golden youth!
They're teaching "Josephine" to walk ; When all the world seems fair with truth;
A pretty doll with curly head May mutual love, your hearts endear
And gaily drest in orange red. And brighten ev'ry coming year.
