Never mind, never mind,

If rain should always go away
Whenever children ask it,

To fill a little basket!

So strong the wind doth blow!

If all at once the wind should drop

What would become of all the ships

EARS and years and years agone,
When you were seven and I was five,
We used to sit on the garden wall,
Clinging together lest we should fall,
Wondering how to get down alive!

Years and years and years gone by,
When you were little and I was small,
S e played together, you and I,
iA'nd sobbed and kissed as we said "good bye,"
There at the gate in the garden wall.

S Years and years and years have past,
And you are pretty and I am all,
.A-nd we meet once more p

with whoop and call
For Letty, and Betty, and Joe,
And search in vain, but you'll find them all,
8ig and little, and short and tall,
In the place where the blackberries grow.
Tom and Marjory, Kate and Nan,
(Butl Jerry and Jill together)
Out of the village they skipped and ran,
With borrowed basket and clinking can,
In the pleasant autumn weather.

Gowns may be rent, and fingers torn,
But the cans will overflow,
And rambling children laugh to scorn
-B3ramble, nettle, and spiteful thorn,
Where the sweet, black berries grow.
Mow never a child you'll keep in school
Or at home, for love
or money, .



.' hen berries
are ripe,
'And the woods
are cool
/th many a breeze
and a grass-grown
the days are
long and



j should not like to be a tree"
Miss Busy Bessie said,
"For Folks to take away my arms,
And burn them when they're dead."

"And if I were these little sticks,
I'd try, with all my might,
To flare right up the chimney,
And set the house alight."

"Oh, no! "said race, in
sweet Surprise,
"You'd not do that, dear Bess,
For if you lived so near the skies
You'd learn more kindliness."


-i the -Holy Night, when the Lord of All,
Lori j '-n:., was born in the poor -inn stable,
Each year, they say, the beasts of the stall
Can talk together as men are able.

They talk of the news the Angels bright
Brought down to the Shepherds, their
night-watch keeping,
Of the ox and the ass who saw that night
The Child in i-.r humble manger sleeping.

.And over their crib they whisper low-
How men and beasts had such
honour paid them,
And for this one night these things they know-
And they praise together the Lord
who made them

Now, ,hrAth-r or no this tale be true
I think it may serve to bring before us
A kindly thought in a way that's new
Of the creatures that
live and labour for us.

H~E 1~



Do you like being out in the fold?
Do you like having turnips to eat?
"Don't you find that the snow is cold
. .Podr sheep to your noses

S.Don't you think you'll be glad
S of the spring
.'.:,hen-the children go out to play,
And the daisies grow and the
thrushes sing
"And the sheep eat grass
all day

THE inglenook is warm and snug, the fire
burns brisk and bright:
Both Tab and Tray are sound asleep,
(they hardly ever fight!)
We've run about the fields all day,
and now we're glad to rest;
I'm sure, of all the children round, that
we're the happiest! \


Yet .lots o oher girls and boys are '\ \'
tired of country ways, I
And Farmer Jays Susanna says "its
such a dull old place:"
She doesn't care to feed the fowls or reae the turkey brood,
She says that all the farming lads are very rough and rude.

'*1'\ 15he wants to crimp her hair, does Sue,
and wear a satin gown,
S '" She'd like to leave the village, too,
., and live in London town.
And Dan, he wants a soldier's life,
Sto eight the French and Dutch,
SBut when they had to kill the piq,
he didn't like it much.

: I sail the rolling sea,
iii;'/"'^' i" l Oh, Tab and Tray the steady land
S l" is best or ou and we;
"1', i I'/ Now that must alY be very fine,
I' ,i but we would rather bide
i ith Tab and Tray, and gather round
the cosy ingleside.

~~-.~so~~ ~QQ~IIP,

$'F, the moon
slowly rise,
,5ars will soon
Fill the skies;

Darkness falls,
Night dras near,
iSomeone calls
'Tis bed-tunre, dear

Good- bye, day,
c-ood night, sun,
Work and play,
All is done. -.'

-bw to sleep,
Angels bright
My darlings keep,
ood n ig ht,
