A BC RHYMES.

O ho! little MAN, though you’re
jolly and good,

You, like this MEASURE, are
made but of wood;

You can not eat MELONS, and
try but your skill,

You make as much noise as the
windin a MILL.

Five and four make NINE all
~ the world over,
Says the little. NEGRO. BOY,
who lives in clover;
He dances around on his heel
4-and. toe, -
And would rather crack a NUT,
than work with his hoe.

The GRANG OUTANG’ an
animal clumsy and big,
Always takes to dancing when
the ORGAN plays a jig.
The OLIVE isa tasty fruit, juicy

amc creer:
You Gant take to visit the Queen.





AS ORM Yee,

The .PEACOCK is’ prouder
than many a girl,

Wearing as ornament a neck-
lace of PEARL.

The POST IE LION; -driving
with all his might,

Is very much afraid as the
PANTHER comes in sight.

Four: voices (or instruments)
make a QUARTETTE;

W hen the singers are good and
the music well set,

They can give unto men the
purest’ of joys;

But if they are bad. then it’s
nothing but noise.

Hans, the RECRUIT, wears a
soldier’s hat,

No longer does he fear the
squeaking of a RAT.

Little ROBIN RED-BREAST
sings at summer’s close

A song of lament at the fading
of the ROSE.
