Ais an Angler, is a Greylhound
Who sat on a log; As swift as the wind;i
Fished all the day long In hunting, he leaves
And got only a frog. Horse and rider behind.
B is good Betty is a Heron
Who bakes in a pie, .L Who lives by a pond,
A great lot of apples Of eating up fish
To make the crust high. He is mightily fond.
Cis a Custard is the Ice
Served in a glass dish, I Where Ike went to skate,
It makes a nice dessert But up flew his heels
As any could wish. And down went his pate.
Dis for Dicky Jis old Jenkins-
Who so loved to eat, U The fiddle he played;
He would leave any play, While joyously listened
For a nice bit of meat. The boy and the maid.
is for Eggs Kis a Kitten
E Which Etty 4ows well, 1K Who jumps at a spool,
To the neighbors so. kind Which the little girl likes
She's certain to sell. Much better than .-hool.
Fis a Fox Tis the Lark .-
Very cunning and sly, Who sings
W. ho watches for poultry When in tle-bf3'
U ". I needn't tell why! We linger too long.
Continued after the pictures.

M is for Molly Tis a Trumpeter
A nice mottled mare, Blowing his horn,
With fine flowing mane To wake up the soldiers
Of soft glossy hair. Betimes in the morn.

N is a Nosegay U is a Unicorn
Besprinkled with dew, Armed it is said,
Picked in the morning With an ivori orn
And given to you. In front o head.
is a barn Owl is a Vulture,
Who looks very wise, Who eats a great deal,
While watching a mouse And swallows a dog
With staring grey eyes. Or a cat at a meal.
Sis a Parrot is a Watchman
With feathers so gay, Who watches the street,
We find him all colors Lest thieves in the dark
Green, golden, and gray. Good people should meet.,
Qis a Queen X is great Xerxes
Q Who governs the land, A king you must kiwow
i Surrounded by courtiers Who reigned over Persia
Each kissing her hand. A long time ago.
R is a Robin -- y is a Yacht -
Who sits on a limb, Sailing out on the sea;
He thinks the red cherries If we were on board
Grow only for him. How happy we'd be.
Sis for Sheep is the Zebra
Eating herbage you see, You've heard of before;
The owner has marked So here ends my rhyme
On their wool a big D. Till I gather some more.
