"Oh, Grandmamma dear, we have come to you

To tell us the stories you always do,
We cannot go in the garden to play,

For oh, it has rained the whole of the day.‘

So Grandmamma smiles, with her pleasant look,

And tells us the tales in this lovely book.





The Wish Flower.

The Wish Flower.

Tell me, oh where does the Wish Flower grow,

On. the sunny shores — in the lands of snow?

In the grounds of some great palace of gold

That in days of old was found, we are told?
Tell me, oh Squirrel, I'd so like to know,

The spot where the wondrous Wish Flowers grow!





| "Yell me, oh Squirrel!





Simple Simon.

Simple Simon met a pieman
Going to the Fair,
Said Simple Simon to the pieman

*Pray give me of your ware.“







i Said the pieman to Simple Simon
"First show me your penny.“
Said Simple Simon to the pieman

"Really I have not any.“

Simple Simon went a-fishing
For to catch a whale,

The only water he had
got

Was in his

mother’s pail.







The Lady of the Lake



The prettiest Doll in
the World.

I once had a sweet little doll, dears,
The prettiest doll in the World,
‘Wer eyes were the loveliest blue, dears,

And her hair was most

charmingly curled.



I lost my sweet little doll, dears,
As I played on the heath one day,

And I cried for her more than a
week, dears,

But I never could find where
she lay.

I found my sweet little doll, dears,
As I played on the heath one day,
Folks say she is terribly changed,



dears,

For her colour is all washed away.



And her arm trodden off by the cows, dears,
And her hair not the slightest bit curled,
But yet for love’s sake she’s to me, dears,

The prettiest doll in the world..

| love Little Pussy:

Birds Nesting.

You cruel cat, what were you at,
Robbing poor Dicky-bird’s nest?
Little mice are just as nice,

And milk of all is best.

What would you say if one fine day
I came and stole your kitties?












I] am aware you would declare
It were a thousand pities.

I love Little Pussy. | wy
I love little Pussy, |
Her coat is so warm;
And if I don’t hurt her,
She'll do me no harm.
So I won't pull her tail,
nor drive her away, .

But Pussy and I together
will play.’

The Little Shepherdess.

Over the mountains, over the meadows
Strays little Lucy with her sheep,

From early dawn tilf soft sunset shadows
Over them careful watch she’ll keep.

Sweet-scented flowers she'll pluck, and bind them
Upon her crook and curly head,

She knows where the best grow, and can find them.
Hidden away. in sheltered bed. |



The sheep hear her voice, and follow, bleating,
Wherever this glad girlie goes,
She seeks where the best grass is for eating,

And where the clearest water flows.



When my Ship comes home.

I hope when my ship comes home from sea

It will bring heaps and heaps of books for me
| from

Father Tuck.
