THE MINSTREL.

As in the fields, I walked one day, I listened with a mute surprise,
I heard a little minstrel play But never once he raised his eyes;
His feet were bare, his air was free, It seemed as if the sweet control
His back, he leaned against a tree, Of music filled his simple soul.
And, on a flute he softly played, And so I left him, playing still
" The King who loved a beggar maid." Beneath the tree, behind the hill.

NOON-TIME.

THE sun is high, 'tis burning noon, For Harry, heedless of the sun,
A clear and lovely day in June Thinks making hay the best of fun.
And Harry stays from school to-day, While father takes a noon-day rest,
To help his father make the hay. With gentle wife and baby blest;
The fragrant hay, that sweet and dry, Forgets his daily toil awhile,
Must feed the cattle, by and by. In wife and baby's happy smile.

FEEDING THE CHICKENS.
YOUNG Willie to the barn-yard hies Soon as his cheery voice is heard,
To feed his tender brood, Come running at his call
.And scatter wide the meal and corn A noisy flock of cocks and hens
That make their daily food. And chickens, great and small.

With joyous clucks and busy beaks,
They peck the golden corn,
That Willie strews with open hand
Each pleasant summer morn.

































THE SAILOR BOY.

Now Tom would be a sailor boy, To him, that tub of water seems
A sailor boy would be, An ocean blue and wide;
And travel round the mighty world That little boat to him, appears
Upon the boundless sea. A ship in all her pride.

With what a look of care he tries And nightly, in his dreams, he sails
To sail his painted boat, Where wide the waters span.
And breathes upon the tiny sail A lad so bright will surely make
To keep it well afloat. A gallant sailor man.

IN cap and coat all trimmed with fur, And though around our muffled ars
See pretty Alice riding, The wintry wind is singing,
While Charley skating close behind, Our skates, upon the sounding ice
The skimming sled is guiding. Still answer with their ringing.

"And Bob, with nose and tippet red, And soon, my merry girls and boys,
His fingers numb is blowing; Though cold the early dawning,
As swiftly o'er the frozen pond The fun will set our blood aglow,
His chubby legs are going. This fine and frosty morning.

THE DRIVER.

SEE our little jockey lad, Though his horse is but a chair,
Manly, bold and ready, His gig a kitchen table,
Holding tight the scarlet reins, He shall have a pony team
Driving straight and steady. To drive, when he is able.
