SHAPPY sailor boy! To all the ships a-sailing by
You wear a suit of navy blue, You gaily shout the sailor-cry:
With anchors on the collar too; "Ship ahoy! ship ahoy!"
kOUND hoop, For, a-following after,
Round hoop, Laughing happy laughter,
Roll away faster, Run maid and master!
J Y white paper kite A "message I sent-
Sailed right out of sight! And it slid
And afar, (0 it did!)
To a star, And sung as it went!
A ND 0 the spring is come again: Lay in the little spheres,
Get out your marble-boys, wee mew! Play the popping game
Mark the magic circle, Of ins and outs, my dears!
SP-up-high! Then let me go slower and lower till I
Swing me up high, 0, ever so high- Dreamily "let the old cat die."
As high as a bird with wings can fly! Down-down-low.
W ITH the legs of giants-(for tall!) They're mechanical toys-(dear, dear!)
And the headsof young boys-(forsmall!) But hark-the noise!
0, indeed I am sure-(how queer!) They are real boys!
I-jilYIfQ CI ORSG.
OH, oh. oh! Great will be the losses,
Whoa, whoa, whoa! For all his apples go
Tot-tot's pranky horses Bouncing o'er the wagon brim!
Both have run away with him:
SUCH a jolly whip to snap: And a dapper
Five big happy boys, Nimbly tripping little chap
Full of vim and noise, For a snapper!
OVER roll the great white As the children grow with years.
And they grow And, 0 children, may ye grow
With the snow White of heart as is the snow !
SUCH a merry, merry war On a field of crystal white!
Half I think you never saw: (And the funniest of the fun-
All the battles fought with might It was never known who won!)
"EE-SA W, Ever the world goes up, goes down;
SEE-SA W"- And the peasant who wears a cap to-day,
Singing the song of Margery Daw, To-morrow may wear a crown!
GAME of ball and toes! And up and down, they'll keep it there--
Thud! and up it goes! Teddy's toes, and Ned's, and then
And like a bubble in the air, Tommy Tucker's nimble ten.
