MY BEAUTIFUL HAMMOCK.

/TY beautiful hammock, I bought it so
cheap,
And now I'll lie down and indulge in a
sleep,
. I've fastened the ends to the trunks of
. JBthe trees,
SAnd I'll swing it about or keep still as
I please;
But somehow I seem to be nearer the
ground!
I fancy my beautiful hammock's unsound.

THE SAND BOY.

W ORK away with a will little Ned,
To fill your wheelbarrow with sand,
For the tide will come in and o'erspread,
With water the place where you stand.
The ditches you've dug with your spade,
Will soon be filled in by the sea,
And the mounds you've so carefully made,
Will be rendered as flat as can be.
But never you mind, little Ned,
Though your labour appears to be vain;
Don't bother your poor little head,
But gaily go at it again.

THE QUEEN OF THE MAY.







I'M to be Queen of the May, mother!
I'm to be Queen of the May!
No one's so lovely to-day, mother,
That's what the people will say.
None have such fairy-like feet, mother,
No one's so timid and shy,
None have so little conceit, mother,
S No one's so modest as I.
/. r That is the reason I say, mother,
1K They have selected to-day,
Me to be Queen of the May, mother,
\ ! Me to be Queen of the May.

HAY-MAKING.

HE haycocks around him to make,
'; Little Harry has worked with the.best,
And now as you see with his rake,
S' He is pausing a minute to rest.
, Little boys, while life's sunshine remains,
Like Harry be sure to make hay,
With tasks that are set you take pains,
-"'i.% Don't waste e'en an hour in a day.

THE BATHER.

THEY dressed him in a bathing suit,
And sent him in the sea;
His feet were innocent of boot,
His hands from gloves were free.
The shingle cut his little feet,
SThe water hurt his eyes;
He didn't think his dip a treat,
So there he stands and cries. -

SUNSHINE.

7K-


L ITTLE maiden! little maiden!
Sitting neathh the summer sky,
See the busy bees are laden
With the honey as they fly.
Hark! the little lambs are bleating,
Round their mothers as they play;
Painted butterflies are fleeting,
Passing beings of a day.
May thy life be free from sadness,
S May thy path be free from pain,
Be thy portion joy and gladness,
Ne'er obscured by cloud or rain.

HOME, SWEET HOME.

W ALKING homeward in the gloaming,
With his bundle on his back,
Never ling'ring, never roaming,
Briskly steps our little Jack.
Hard has been his work and weary, \j
But 'tis over for the day,
Pleasant is his face and cheery, _"...
,_:_ As he whistles on his way; ,'
For he knows his mother's greeting,
When she makes the kettle boil,
And her kindly kiss at meeting,
Will reward him for his kcj*; -.

GREEDY JIM.


A TERRIBLE boy is greedy Jim,
He's now so fat, and was once so slim,
His collar won't meet around his throat,
And he's burst the buttons from off his coat;
'' ,"""^ His cheeks have grown such a monstrous size,
That they near' c,'-'ev his nose and eyes.
S Whenever you re hi-.krv, think of him:
Don t be b.. ,-i:. tI..: greedy Jim.

SI LOVE MY LITTLE GARDEN.

0 H I love my little garden,
i Where I dig and rake and hoe,
> i1'."i'', And watch the lilies as they bloom,
And see the sunflowers blow.
SBut I think this horrid spider
S .l' ,\ Had much better catch the flies,
J And not go spinning on my hat,
. ., And swinging in my eyes.

HE'D LIKE TO BE A SAILOR.


H E'D like to be a sailor boy,
To plough the foaming seas,
To sing about the ocean wave,
The battle and the breeze.
But he wouldn't like to go on deck,
Amidst the pelting rain,
And when at last he did turn in,
To be turned out again:
tf, .And when the night got stormy,
// And the -,nd h.E:an to.i n.u
H/e wouldn't think a sa:l.'.:-:- Jie

THE LITTLE FISHERMAN.




W HAT are you about to do
With your little fishing can,
Try to catch a fish or two,
Is it that, my little man ?
J When the little fishes spy,
You upon the river brink,
Won't they wag their tails and fly ?
Will you catch them, do you think?
Little fisher, do you know,
--, Life's a river swift and deep;
SOi\vard it will ever flow,
'iTill at last we fall asleep.

UP A LOFT.







THE little lass whom here you see,
Whose tears so freely flow,
Has gone aloft in childish -lee,
SBut now is plunged in wot.
Her fate is sad enough you'll say,
But 't will be even sadder,
If all her friends should ,o awav 'I
And not bring back the ladder.i
