NURSERY RHYMES.

sete es ss



She eried, “Ob, dear me, I don’t know what to do,
Who would be an old woman, and live in a shoe?”
So she gave the boys broth without any bread,
And whipped them all soundly and sent them to bed.
She scolded the girls, and said, ‘‘ Don’t make a noise,
Or you shall be served just the same as the boys.”
Then one little fellow sat down on the floor

And lustily screamed, ‘“ I won’t cry any more!”
“Then stop crying now,” the old woman said,

‘The noise you are making goes right through my head.

















































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































HUSH-A-BYE, BABY.

————@-—___--




; > There you are put, and there you must stop!

This way and that way the cradle will swing,

High on the tree where the birds sit and sing.
When the wind blows, the cradle will rock !

Then, baby, take care of your pretty new frock !
For if ine strong wind should blow it away,

And take you inside it, why, what would you say ?
And should the bough break, the cradle would fall—
‘Then down would come baby, the new frock and all!
But hush-a-bye baby, don’t ery, pretty dear,

The bough is quite strong, there is no need to fear!

THE OLD WOMAN IN A BASKET.

ee




YiNHERE was an old woman who had a large broom,
Xe Ie

sate :
gang She sat in a basket to sweep a small room;

Though her seat was so low, her thoughts were so high,
They carried her—basket and all—to the sky.
Said she, “I shall come back, I know, very soon,
[ll sweep down those cobwebs I see on the moon;
Oh, dear! it is nice in a basket to fly,
I think I can bring home a star if I try.”
She turned out her toes and—she gave a loud scream,
And cried out, ““O dear! what a very strange dream!

Now who would have thought that when I meant to sweep

I should sit in a basket, and fall asleep!”

< Put up Mistress Doll for another day.
The sun in the west has gone to rest,
And the little Robin is in his nest.
The pretty flowers, well washed with showers,
Are closing to sleep through the quiet hours.
Then haste to bed,” gentle sister said,
As her little pets to their crib she led.
But Master Joe came quiet and slow,
He did not like to his bed to go.
And Missy Ann to whimper began,
But blithe little Peterkin forward ran.
No fuss he made, at once he obeyed,
Ilis nice round head on the pillow laid
