TRUANT BUNNY.

COME, children, listen now to me,
Hear what I shall relate

About a silly truant Hare,
And think upon his fate.

Attention give to what I say,
And bear it well in mind,

And when you hear the story through,
The moral you will find.

A certain wise grey Owl did once
For youngsters keep a school,

Were little pigs, and hares, and dogs,
Where sent to learn by rule.

It happened that a silly Hare
The truant once did play;
And o’er the fields did scarape.-off,

From school-honse far away.







A gun upon his shoulder lay,
A bag flung o’er his back:

“What fine sport I shall have,” said he,
“Ere 1 toe home go back.”

He’d not gone far upon his way,
Before a ox he saw;

Says Reynard, “Ah I’m glad you're here ;”
And offered Lim his paw.

“Shake paws with me, and then we both
To join seme friends will go;

They'll treat vou well,—before you part,
You'll like them all, I know.”

The silly Hare the Fox believed,
And follewed him till when

He saw three other Foxes, all
Carousing in their den.











They welcomed Bunny, who was fain
To do as they were doing,

Not thinking that what would ensue
Must lead to his own ruin.

These wicked Foxes well were known
To all the farmers round ;

They'd robbed the country far and near
Where poultry did abound.

Hounds, as Police, were on their track,
The den they sought and found it,
Where on the floor poor Bunny snored,

With gun, and bag around it.

Policeman Trim soon collared Bun,
The Foxes fled away;

The gun and bag were also seized, |
For Bun had nought to say.







Bunny was then to prison borne,
Like malefactor bound,

And soon for poaching he was tried,
Before Judge Ape profound.

His guilt was plain, sad proofs appeared,
Nought could poor Bunny save;

The bag and gun,—the Fox’s den,—
Brought Bunny to the grave.

Behold the last sad scene of all,—
The Ox, with mournful tread,
Led Bunny to the gibbet tall,
To hang—till he was dead.

Now you who’ve heard poor Bunny’s fate
From it this moral glean,

Who in bad company is founda,
Will dearly rue, I ween.
