Illustration:  Dapple-gray.  A Book of Nursery Rhymes.  Arranged by Charles Welsh.  Illustrated by Clara E. Atwood.  D. C. Heath & Co., Publishers: Boston, New York, Chicago. Ca 1901.

I had a little pony,

His name was Dapple-gray,

I lent him to a lady,

To ride a mile away;

She whipped him, she slashed him,

She rode him through the mire;

I would not lend my pony now

For all the lady’s hire.

Rock An Elephant Baby!

Illustration:  Rocking the Cradle.  THE ADVENTURES OF MOLLIE, WADDY AND TONY.  Written by Paul Waitt.  Illustrations by Clara E. Atwood.  Little, Brown, and Company: Boston. 1915.

“Then he began the business of rocking that cradle.”

A tiny cradle, – it was a real baby’s cradle, – had been placed near the center of the stage. Tony soberly walked up to it and gently laid the baby elephant in the cradle, pulling up the bedclothes with his clever trunk and tenderly covering the baby.

Picking up a match from a table close by, he scratched it, and lit a candle on the table. Then he began the business of rocking the cradle, in such a funny manner that the boys and girls just shrieked with laughter.

“The Welsh Rabbit took another bite of toasted bread, and sobbed aloud.”

Ride, baby, ride,

Pretty baby shall ride,

And have a little puppy dog tied to her side,

And a little pussy cat tied to the other,

And away she shall ride

To see her grandmother,

To see her grandmother,

To see her grandmother.
