Don't you touch my water box -
I assure you, Master Kit,
If you do but raise a paw,
you'll be bit, bit, bit!"

"Well, I never, Madam Poll!
but I think you've met your match,
If you bite me you will find
I can scratch, scratch, scratch!"
You very naughty pair,
to quarrel and to fight,
To see you disagree is
a most shocking sight.

Sweets to the Sweet.


It's no good getting in a passion
And fluttering your wings in that fashion,
You will get no sugar if you do,
Pretty Mrs. Polly Cockatoo.

A Tempting
Sight.
Jip would enjoy
one of these
for a meal, / N
But he's learnt
that it's very
wrong to steal, /

May we come and dine with you?


















The Flower Bird.

Do buy a buttonhole, Sir Robin,
My name is Jenny Wren,
And in my neat nest in yonder tree
I've little birdies ten.


Playing at Soldiers.
o, The children tell
Kit it is great fun
,To play at soldiers


and hold a gun.

The Newspaper Bird.


Buy a paper? Lots of news -
Please, Sir, you will not refuse.
All the latest news, you know -
Splendid speech by Sir Jim Crow -


Accident to Specklebreast -
Tumbled out of his new nest.
Marriage of Cock Robin too,
To Miss Jenny Wren so true!
Poem by Lord Chanticleer -
You will find them all in here!





Pretty Polly.


There was once a parrot named Poll,
A pretty green parrot was Poll,
But attracted, I think,
By his beak which was pink,
A fly with an air, tol-de-rol.








Came flitting and fluttering by,
And perched on Poll's nose, eye to eye,
Then, before you could wink,
Polly's claw which was pink
Like his beak, darted out on that fly.


"I've caught you, rude fellow!" cried Poll,
"Not you" buzzed the fly, "tol-de-rol;
As he rose in the air,
"And your play is not fair,
Hit a man your own size, Master Poll."






Summer Sweets.


Birds are singing in the trees,
Lightly blows the pleasant breeze,
Green leaves nodding overhead,
Flowers blooming in their bed,

Blue sky beaming over all,
Bright sun like a golden ball.

Summer's come, and with him brings
Hosts of lovely, lovely things,
2-, "S 1 Every day brings
some fresh treat,
S, Something new and
something sweet.

Swallow and I.


Swing low, M. '
91 2 1
swing high,
Swing high, .
swing low, f
See the white
blossoms fall (N
Like fleecy
snow:



If tales. were true
That we often have read,
These snowy flakes
Would be fairies instead.

The swallows all
Would be Fairyland kings,
With golden crowns
And with real silver wings.








My Dicky.

I had a little dicky bird,
Pretty soft bright yellow,










.He sang the cheeriest
`- of songs,
Darling little fellow!

But one day when I saw his cage,
The door was open wide,
And Oh, how sad I was to see
No little dick inside.

I feared he had flown far away,
Or by my cat been caught,
For Pussy sometimes killed small birds,
Though she'd been better taught.

When, suddenly, above I heard,
A pretty gentle "tweet,"
And on the curtain rod I saw
My little dicky sweet.






Naughty Kitty.


Oh, I never knew such
a naughty bad cat,

She's stolen the dick
from Mother's new hat.
Promise me, Pussy,
you'll be good from to day
Or really and truly
I'll give you away.

Father Tuck.
