“Idle Hands Make Sad Hearts.”
You little bee,
Come play with me,
The sunshine’s warm and clear;
You need not fear
The cold severe,
The winter is not near.
My little maid,
I can’t be stayed,
I must not lose to-day.
For time, you see,
Won’t wait for me,
But sweeps the flowers away.

But Orson threw the Green Knight down, and bound him with a chain,
And set the lady free; both brothers then start off to gain
The Green Knight’s castle-gates – two roaring lions keep guard there,
But down they crouched when they beheld the brothers void of fear.

Presently a wolf came along and knocked at the door, and said, — “little pig, little pig, let me come in!”
To which the pig answered, — “No, no, by the hair on my chinny-chin-chin!”
This made the wolf angry, and he said, — “Then I’ll huff, and I’ll puff, and I’ll blow your house in!”

“John, the Bull-Dog Puppy.”
John belongs to my brother. He is not beautiful but is kind-hearted and good-tempered. My brother says bull-dogs are not half so bad as they look, which I think is a good thing, for some of them look terrible creatures, and I always feel inclined to cross over the way when I see one coming.
