“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.

Brothers Void Of Fear!

Illustration:  Lions.  From the story "Valentine And Orson"  The Three Bears’ Picture Book.  Illustrated by Walter Crane.  George Routledge and Sons: London & New York.

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.

Huff And Puff!

Illustration:  Wolf At The Door.  The Story of The Three Little Pigs.  McLoughlin Bro’s: New York. Ca 1900.

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!”
