NED’S HORSE.

And he learned the fact that as a rule,

No mending is done without a tool,

And he carried his horse to a carpenter,

Who said, “I’ll mend it, my little sir.”

And really he mended the head so well

That the broken place you could hardly tell,

And proud as a lord was gallant Ned

Who mounted his hobby-horse and said,

“You never could mend a live horse’s-head,

So I’ll keep my wooden one instead.”
