FUNNY ANIMALS AT PLAY
Now little folks all,
And some not so
small,





Just hear what Miss Kitty is
telling.
She is speaking a piece,
And the noise it must cease,
Or she will be hoarse from
her yelling.
She is dressed very neat,
From her head to her feet,





Mr. Frog-he thinks her so
cunning;
While Froggy himself
Is a dapper young elf,
And his friend, Mr. Rat,
J is quite stun-
S ning.



Run, Dog-'
gies, run,
Isn't it
fun?

and get under.
Come on, Number Two,
Make a dash and go through;
Now which will be caught
first, I wonder.

She

thinks she will


never,


never get through.
Her glasses drop off and her
needle won't thread,
And she says she is getting a
pain in her head.





Little Tom must have some
shoes-
So says Grandma Tabby;
For when Thomas goes to
church
He must not look shabby.
Little Tommy, with a pout,
Says,"My claws I can't get out!"





Oh! Oh! See them go
Isn't this a funny show?
Mr. Lion drives quite well,
And his rig is very swell.


With his Zebra horse so gay,
He can travel any day.
See his Tiger footman there-
Of your tail, sir, have a care!















When school

They must not stop and talk.
Oh, dear, and she has spied
that note-
It is a dreadful shock.





To Pussy in the window high,
STom sings a tender rhyme.
Oh, look behind you, Thomas,
dear,
And run while there is time.


Miss Frisky had a lover bold,
Who thought her very fair.
Miss Frisky got a kiss, I'm told,
When all these kits were there.













As Mamma Cat sat knitting one
day,
With Papa Cat by her side,
Young Mr. Nig came marching
in,
And he had brought his bride






O, Driver! Stop and look behind;
A naughty urchin you will find.
Just see him grin from ear to ear!
He's very saucy, sir, I fear.
Now, can't you reach him with
your whip?
I told him he had better skip;
But he won't mind a word I
say-
You'd better drive him right
away!





Of all


the queer skaters that


ever were out,
Now these are the queerest,
haven't a doubt.

Two little doggies
By the fire,
Watching the blaze go
Higher and higher.
One little doggie
Says, "0 dear,
It's getting very
Late, I fear!"

dog,


Whose name is Shep.


Shep has

Isn't he fine?
One little doggie says,
"Wish it was mine.'

One poor doggie
Out in the snow;
Where he belongs,
I'm sure I don't know.






Two little doggies,
One in a plight;
The tear on his cheek
Is a sorrowful sight.


One big doggie,
Tied up tight-
Go away, Puss,
Or there'll be a fight.





Young Owletwent
a courting-
So they say;
Bto Wasn't he a
a i happy bird,
pS That June
". day?
Now there's trouble in the tree-
So I hear;
Anyway the Owlets two
Act very queer.





Little Bruin is so proud
Of his pockets new,
That the cunning fellow really
Can't think what to do.


Little bears must learn their
lessons,
We all know;
When they get them good and
perfect
They may go.

madam,

to you,


Glad we met;
Are the squirrels in your country
All gone yet?


Oh,






One very cold morning in
winter,
Mr. Bear said he thought he
would skate;
He never had learned, though
he often had yearned,
And to try it was never too
late;
So he sat on a chair while a
good neighbor bear
Fixed him up at a most rapid
rate.

So the two neighbors there they
took hold of the bear,
His slippery footsteps to guide.





Now, none of them saw Mrs.
Bruin,
But she had been watching
the fun;
She thought it was rash-then
she heard a great crash,
And she feared that the
damage was done.
She ran for a pole when she
saw the big hole;
But the bears-they were safe,
every one.












"Hello "Hello!
Who are you? I'd like to know."
"I am Owlkin-can't you tell?
Called to see if you were well."





Puppy Dog went to the cup-
board one day,
And there he found a bone.
Puppy Dog gnawed it as fast
as he could,
For he thought he was all
alone.
Papa Dog came as still as a
mouse,
And he had a great big stick-
He thought he must punish
Puppy Dog
For such a naughty trick;
But Puppy Dog looked so very
cute
That Papa Dog had to smile;
And he went away to laugh by
himself,
Saying, "I'll wait awhile."





Two little truants,they ran away,
All on a sunny summer's day;
They laid their books by the
side of the brook,
And went to fishing with line
and hook. o








Up came the teacher, very sly,
For he had happened the rogues
to spy;
He lifted his rod-but he let
them go
When he saw the good fat fish,
you know.

And they didn't know what he

And ask them what is the rent
of it.
It looks quite pleasant I think,
don't you?
If it isn't too high I guess it
will do.





Four little owlies,
All in a row;
One wears a dunce-cap-
Isn't it so?
He wouldn't study,
So I have heard;
Picked all the others,
Bad little bird!

Here's Mr. Bruin,
He rides very well.
What's on his nose-
Can any one tell?
Yes, it's a muzzle,
So he can't bite.
Well, Mr. Bruin,
You're quite a sight

Four little doggies,
All in their best.
One little doggie
Sings for the rest;
Two little- doggies
Talking so low-
What they are saying,
None of us know.















Look! Look! Every one;
Hurry up and see the fun
-Here's a rig that's very neat,
And the horse is surely fleet,
See the footman in his place,
With a very solemn face;
And the driver, glass at eye-
Stand aside till they go by.

You can take quite a fly.
