Page 39 - So, after a while, but how long I can't tell, The little ones crept, one by one, from the shell ; And their mother was pleased, and she loved them well. She spread her soft wings on them all the day long, To warm and to guard them, her love was so strong ; And her mate sat beside her and sung her a song. One day the young birds were all crying for food, So off flew their mother away from her brood ; And up came some boys who were wicked and rude.
Page 83 - I once had a sweet little doll, dears, The prettiest doll in the world; Her cheeks were so red and so white, dears, And her hair was so charmingly curled. But I lost my poor little doll, dears, As I played in the...
