With bounding steps and eth noise, -

Eager to use their garden tools,
The sole untried of all the toys,





And Little Six-Years-Old with joy
Finds use for his delightful rake,

‘For on the path some fallen leaves

They. sit beneath the chesnut-tree ;
With scent of flowers the air is sweet ;

The sunbeams glitter through the leaves
That: shield them from the noontide

heat.

And there they take their pleasant food,
—Refreshing after hours of play,—
And:téll cach other, with glad smiles,
That they have had a happy day.”

And so they have! When, by-and-bye,
Childhood becomes a tale that ’s told,
They both will think with sighs and
smiles :
Of little Master Six-Years-Old !
