Like a “soft blaniel the

TH the time’ came for them to go away,
A new friend came lo. the flowers -the Sun,
And out of the bed peeped every

“How about breakfast

One wintry day,
Into the garden
Wended their way,
Where the snow lay deep
That wint ry d ay.

One, with a broom,

One, Scattered crumbs;
Then away to play,
And the pobins breakfaSted
Thal wintry day.











All the way

round the clock.



When clouds cover the suns bright ray,
When rain-drops palter where we play,

It is a long, long toilsome way—

,

All the way, round the clock.

When Master Fred cant do his sums
Op lesson pages marked with thumbs,
The hours seem years tili bed time comes~



All the way round the clock.

When Daisy-stars come out with Spring

And cowslips home the children bring,

Like larks at morn, the children sing-
All the way round the clock.

When in the nursery fire-light they






Whisper sweet tales, the
children say,

What pity ‘ts so shor! a

At Night.

Every night, when sinks the sun
Deep info the west,

Every little birdie sleeps

within its nest



And my little sweet one, thou,

‘Thou mus! ge to resi
Thou must pray, Ged keep thee
Safe from fear and fright
Thou musi pray | Him keep ay friends =
Safe Hill morning light,
eons mother, all thou lov’si
Kiss them all-Good night.

« For the dear old dustman comes,



With a sleepy sand



Shut eyes close, my litle one,
Lel him take thy hand—
Fe will gently carry

Ona washing- day in the morning,

This is the way we wring the clothes,
We wring the clothes,

Everyone knows we wring the clothes
On a washing day in the morning.
