JACK IN THE BOX.


OUT for a walk went Edith with her mother,
They passed a pretty toy-shop on their way.
"Oh ! dear Mamma," begged then the little maiden,
"Before the window for a moment stay."

" Nay, we will go into the shop, my darling,
And for your brothers you shall choose a toy."The shopman brought out many pretty playthings,
And Edith looked on all with eager joy.

But soon a tight-shut box wins her attention,
And up to it her dear Mamma she brings. Mamma her finger puts upon a brass kno
Up flies the lid, and out a figure sprin*

"Jack in the Box cried pretty little Edith,
"Do buy it, dear Mamma, to please the boys; We all have heard of it since we were, babies,
But never had one amongst all our toys. ))



















So Jack was bought, and all the happy children,
Gathered around their smiling mother's knee; Delighted, when the wondrous box was opened,
The merry little Sailor's face to see.

"Let's look at Jack," next day said little Arthur;
They lift the lid, and cry, " What have we here ? For up had popped, with rifle and fixed bayonet,
A gallant-looking British Grenadier.

" Jack has

a Ploughman


with


whip! "-it Well, dear, no doubt he'll keep his furrows even,
H e's used to steer, you know, on board his
ship."


" Oh, Edith!" cried next day the little Amy,











"I wonder if to-day Jack is a soldier?"
Said Arthur, as he gave the box a jerk; Up flies the lid, a Carpenter, revealing,
With saw and basket ready for his work.



















Our funny Jack has turned into a jester,
With cap and bells, and bauble in his hand;
And while he makes them ring, and nimbly capers,
Lost in surprise the children round him stand.

"Oh, here we are again !" So near to Christmas,
He thinks you'd like to see him as a Clown;
Should he make too much mischief, or sad blunders,
You'll only have, you know, TO PUT HIM DOWN.

Behold the Christmas tree! the Christmas pudding!
Mamma once more the wondrous toy unlocks, And in his Sailor's dress again appearing,
The children welcome back JACK IN T'HE Box.






















To Edith's care they give this charming present,
Which in the closet carefully she locks;
And only upon grand occasions shows them
The many changes of the magic box.
