WHAT ECHO SAID TO THEM.
_g j r-~--A
Once on a time, two little boys
And naughty ones, you'll say,
Resolved, before they'd go to school,
That they would go and play.
The spot they chose to linger at,
And seat themselves to chat,
Re-echoed, or sent back the voice,
But they did not know that.
Says William to his brother Dick,
'We shall not be found out,'
But Echo heard the naughty boy,
And answered 'Be found out.'
'I fear,' said Dick to little Will,
'That some one overhears;'
He looked to see, and Echo then
Cried, 'Some one overhears.'
'Oh! never mind,' said William, then,
'Come, do not be afraid!'
So when they both began to play,
Said Echo,-' Be afraid!'
~yL- "' 1 ii i

'What can it be,' said William,
'Oh, let us go to school,'
For he began to be afraid;
Said Echo-' Go to School!'
Then, softly whispering, they said,
'Oh, if our Master knows;'
But Echo hearing every word,
Said, softly, 'Master knows.'
',_".-' *;_ ..-- ._ .
'What shall we do!' then William said,
'We must not tell a fib.'
And then they heard the Echo's voice
Say,-' Must not tell a fib.'
So Dick began to cry, and said
'William, you brought me here;'
Said Echo, in a mournful tone,
'William, you brought me here!'
'I never will do this again,
If master will forgive.'
Said Will to Dick; and then
Said 'Master will forgive!'
'Then let us go,' said little Will;
'Come, Dicky, do not cry.'
And in the same tone, Echo said,
'Come, Dicky, do not cry.'
'We shall not be so very late,
If we make haste away;'
And Echo, with a warning voice,
Cried out, 'Make haste away.'
Then Dicky dried his tears, and said,
'I will do so no more,'
And Echo, in a cheerful voice,
Then said,-' Do so no more'
'Then we'll be off to school,' said they:
And off they quickly ran;
And, luckily, were just in time,
Before the school began.
Remember, then, my little friends,
i Though Echo nothing knew,
There's One above who always knows
Both what you say and do.
