G7o, a last, you see i, done
Could you make a better one ?
Nose and chin, and mouth and '
At a show he'd take a prize.
I 5kould like it understood,
Too, that he is very good;
Thouhz he has such 5 aucy eyes,
Sttil he never, never cries,
M"outh he has, yet never taluKs
Two a[ le, but take no walks
ie oI5 always good as Sold,
For he never eeis the cold.
5iucch a baby few have met,
Tor he doesn't hungry et-;
Never drinks, and cannot eat -
D5ul he sadiy feels the hea!. -

WVas5 known as Mary that's because
it wds her name, 'is hinted.

Now she had read in 5-ory book
About another Mary,
WVho had a lamb that- always took
With her it-s ambols airy

5 o Mary that is this one here,
"Determined she would gel one,
And went int-o a meadow near
And very soon she met- one.
SiBut, strange L-osay, as soon as L,'ej
'. ~~ Her -..I.. hIad detected,
They ran away,- with her to play

O ... O ) you know him, 'irl and Loys?
"*...I wonder if you do:
/ He cries for sweefs, he cries for toys,
He cries for nothing, too.
He cries when it is time to rise,
He wants to lie in bed
And hioen he goes to bed he cries
To sil- up late instead !
As sure as fh-e, he'll want to cry
When heb a man, some dayd
In vain to find a tear he'll try -
They'll all be cried away



VB come all the way in a hamper
On purpose l-o ay 'how dyou do';
And now I will do for a scamper,
It's time, sir, -or you -o rise too!
