WONDERS

OF A

LONDON TOY-SHOP.















Pp ray, what would you like?” said a Foyman,
one day, |

Addressing a group of young folks;
‘| have toys in abundance, and very cheap, too,
Though not quite so cheap as my jokes. «)

“That iron-grey rocking-horse, just at your side,
With saddle and bridle complete,

Will go without whipping, and, equally strange,
oN making use of his feet.

“Yet, stranger than that—whatsvever his pace,
Whether canter, or gallop, or trot,
Though moving at ten miles an hour—he ne’er

Advances one inch from the spot.



‘* Flere’s a wagon well laden, and here is a dray,
With horses and harness complete ;
You can drive them in parlour and drawing-
room, tuo,
As easily as through the street.



































‘* Here’s a whole file of soldiers quite ready for
fight,
And each of them armed with a oun ;
You may knock them all down with a feather,
and then,
rou may pocket them—every one.



‘*A doll's pretty kitchen stands next on the shelf,
With grate, pans, and kettle, and pot;

With dish and tureen, and all crockery-ware,
Knives and forks, and I cannot tell what:

‘*'They would not quite do for a great city feast,
But, I think I may venture to say,
A minnow or tittlebat there might be cooked,

As a rarity on Lord Mayor's day.

‘* Here’s a fine stud of horses, which, strange.
though it sounds,

_ Live neither on corn nor on hay;
A gentleman’s carriage, and tilbury, too,
For which there’s no duty to pay.







































** A coachman so plump, and a footman so tall,
Who cost not a penny for food:
For, to tell you the truth, all their insides are

filled

With a permanent dinner of wood.

‘* Examine this sword, with its handle and sheath
And its blade made of innocent wood;
"Twere well if allswords were as harmless at this,

And equally guiltless of blood.

*‘ Here’sa mill that will go without water or wind,
A wonder you cannot deny ;
I really can’t say whether it will grind corn,

aut it will be quite easy to try.

‘*A full set of bricks is enclosed in this box,
(With the mortar we well may dispense, )

But with these you may build a magnificent
house,

Without e’en a farthing expense.





‘*With these you may raise up a Royal Exchange,
In less than five minutes ;—and then

Knock it down, and build up a new Parliament
House,

In another five minutes,—or ten.

See! the lion with wide open jaws,

Enough to affright one, and yet, I’ve no doubt,
You might venture to play with its claws.

“ And a tiger, as tame as a lap-dog, you'll find,
And a fox that will not steal the geese ;
So here you must own the old adage is proved,

That wonders are never to cease.”
