THE SKATING PARTY




THIS is a skating party and we're going home to dine;
We've been out all the morning ever since half-past nine,
And now we hear the dinner bell, so, hungry as can be,
We're rushing home to Mamma, with our faces full of glee.


MY h:idn't '.e .1 Ilovelly time on the ice so smooth and hard-
The pond's out in the meadow beyond Timothy's back yard.
But \'ourl Tom -.ad .1 dreadful f.ill, and he didn't cry a tear,
SAnd no b; i folls ; cic standing by to say to Tom, "Poor dear."
[ .^a
* 1 ': '


'I


SO I just s.id it; :ind at th.t Tom gieew first red. then \ hite.
And k1::,:kd as ii he'd Ih e to f.ill again, just out of spit ;
But he didn't, and instead of that he came close. up to. me
And whispered, "You're the nicest girl that ever I did see."




NOW if you ask Tom's opinion about what's best to play,
He'll surely say it's skating though you fall down every day;
At least that's what he told to me, for you see Tom has no fear,
And if he should fall when I am by, I'll always say, "Poor dear."

HAT OZZY SAID TO FELIX





0 UT of dreamland three children have come, as a fresh new day is dawning,
So sleepy baby must wake up too, for it is Christmas morning;
Here are Lucy and Jack and Fred and Felix, but Felix will lie abed.




O, no," says Bozzy, the shaggy dog, as he barks at his little master,
"Just look at the nursery clock, my dear, the minutes go fast and faster,
And presently the sun will rise, and mount to very noon in the skies.

"O UT in the parlour, when breakfast is done, you'll find a heap of things
That have come down the chimney, so Pussy Cat says, for Santa Claus has wings-
She saw him as on the hearth she sat; I wish I were just as wise as a cat."




NOW, oh! how quickly is Felix dressed in the clothes that Lucy brought-
Hair brushed, face washed, shoes blacked and tied-you never would have thought
That he could lazily lie abed; was it all because of what Bozzy said ?

W AR AND ARBITRATION


W E had a war outside our gate, Tom and his brother Jack and I;
Our balls were big, and made of snow, and oh! how they did fly.


Built a ft:rt where Timnothyi m.de believe he was the garrison,
But we three bo\s just routed him; mv:! wasn't it great fun.









r'.-
x, /







I MEAN at first, for pretty soon I got real mad, I'll tell you why;
Tim threw a ball and hit my face, and most put out my eye.


W ELL, then we all got hold of Tim, and tumbled him with all our might,
Till he looked like a real snow man, from head to foot all white.


THEN we took sides, for wasn'tt fair for three to be againstt one, you know,
So Jack stood out with Timothy, and Tom took me, and so


WAE beat, for Tom's the bravest boy there is in all creation-
I mean we would have beat, but Jack called out for arbitration;


AND that means that folks mustn't fight, with snowballs, nor with swords,
But sit down still in Father's barn, and settle it by words.
CHARLOTTE F. DALEY.








THOUGHTFUL ROSY



O UR Rosy was tired of frolic and play
At two o'clock in the afternoon,
So down on the sofa to rest she lay,
And to think, perhaps, of the man in the moon;
Or was it the mountains in the moon?
Or the clouds that sail so soft and white?
Whatever she thought of I do not know,
But I do know the old Dream Sprite.


A ND there he stood at the Sandman's side,
At two o'clock in the afternoon.
His red umbrella was open wide,
And I said to him, "Why have you come so soon?"
He pointed to Rose, and his quiet face
Was radiant with a gracious smile,
As to my question he replied
"This baby and I will think awhile."


NOW if ever you're tired of work or play,
Even tho' it's daytime and only two,
Lie down to think as Rosy did,-
And the Dream Sprite will come and think with you.
CHARLOTTE F. DALEY.

SUN DIALS, OR HOW MAMMAS


TELL


TIME


THERE'S many a way of telling time in this blessed world of ours,
From Brie 0' and his turnip watch to the chimes of cathedral towers;
There's the clo,-lkt.-ch. the hoiir-i.s.i s i j th. siun-d.il in the sun,
They each c-mn s .I '. I., ll heIJ, h x..tbe course th day is run.
There's tle d.in b r tll.t, tn.dt n,-d, in the grass;
But I kn.:-'.\ : C le'" I' te :ce :. .1 lid or a lass.
Y" .... :i' .-- -i..


W HEN kissing-time comes in the morning, I know it as well as can be
By the way these lads and -lasses come crowding close round me,
With mouths puckered up like a gentian and eyes overflowing with love,
And faces wreathed in sweetest smiles; all this to my judgment doth prove
That all the clocks in all the world, however so many there be,
Exactly point to kissing-time ; at least for the children and me.

AND when sleepy-time comes in the evening, I know it as well as can be
By. the way these lads and lasses come crowding about my knee,
With eyes that in the morning's prime sparkled with liquid light,
With faces where sweet trust takes up her vigil for the night.
So all the clocks in all the world, however so many there be,
Exactly point to sleepy-time; at least for the children and me.
CHARLOTTE F. DALEY.








FROM FIVE O'CLOCK TO


FIVE O'CLOCK

FIVE o'clock looks out to see dawn illume the skies;
Six o'clock on summer days sees the sun arise;
Seven o'clock will list to hear all the children waken-
Presently their way will be to the schoolroom taken.

EIGHT o'clock and nine o'clock find the girls and boys
Busy with their books and slates, busy with their toys;
Ten o'clock, oh that's the time baby takes a nap ;
Ele. ih.-J b.ib', is ;.'.iake and coo's ,:,n Mamma's lap.

Sleds go flying down the hill, snowballs fill the air,
Skates go whizzing o'er the pond, fun is everywhere.
T HEN comes five. o'clock once more, and the winter sun
Softly sinks behind the hills, and the day is done.
