Winter Sports

The children’s coats are downy white,

And ruddy winter berries bright

Are tam-o’-shanters warm and red

Upon each little golden head.

.

On sleds of holly leaves they coast,

Of silver skates they proudly boast

And snowball fights with tiny forts –

These are their jolly winter sports.

Lady Winter

Lady Winter clothed in ermine

On the North Wind gallops in,

Over crystal bridges bright,

Over carpets snowy white.

.

See the North Wind snorting, prancing,

Scare the leaves that, romping, dancing,

Cease their merriment and play

And hurrying, scurrying, run away.

“I HAD A COMFORTABLE SEAT ON THE WALL.”

 . . . and Dicker sat beside me.

Presently they began, and it was one of the funniest things I ever saw – to watch Augustus Ham jumping up and down trying to hit a shuttlecock; he couldn’t play the least little bit; why, even Major Porker couldn’t help smiling

Mayday Ball!

Maypole-A-Year-With-The-Fairies-Sq

The Mayday Dance.

The Fairies dance with song and shout,

And some trip in and some trip out

Around a Dandelion tall

Whene’er they hold their Mayday ball.

Swinging, swinging, see them bend,

Hear their voices sweetly blend

With the silvery fairy strains

While they weave their Daisy chains.
