feet listen to Speckle, she cackles so loud

You can hear her all over the farm:
Of her brood of young chicks she’s exceedingly proud,
While she carefully guards them from harm.

These plump little chickies that wander about,

Many days dwelt in pretty white eggs,
Till cracking and breaking the shells they popped out,
And walked off on their own little legs.

“ Pray, Madam, how many young chicks have you got?”
“Please to count; there are eight, you will see.

Nowhere else can you find such a nice looking lot;
They are surely a credit to me!” _

THE YOUNG DONKEY.

SCAMPER over the pasture, and amuse myself all
day, :
For Pve nothing at all to think of, as yet, but sport and
play;
But my mother often tells me, and I s'pose that she
must know,
That a time is quickly coming when it will not be so;
When I shall wear a bridle, and-have to pull a cart,
And of this great world’s labor, perform
my little part.
