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.

Please Help Poor Bossy!

Illustration:  “Poor bossy!”  Mary’s Little Lamb.  Henry Altemus Company: Philadelphia. 1906.

The cow, when she saw the little girls, went “Moo-oo-oo!” as if she were trying to say, “Can’t you help me?”

“Poor bossy!” said Alice; “I’ll try and help you.”

It was hard work, but after patient efforts bossy was released, and then she went “Moo-oo” again, as though she said, “Thank you.”

Because he can work no faster.

Pig In A Pear Tree!

Illustration:  Pig In A Pear Tree.  The Story of The Three Little Pigs.  McLoughlin Bro’s: New York. Ca 1900.

Well, the little pig bustled up the next morning at four o’clock, and went off for the pears, hoping to get back before the wolf came. But he had further to go, and had to climb the tree, so that just as he was getting down from it he saw the wolf coming, which, as you may suppose, frightened him very much. When the wolf came up he said, “What! are you here before me? are they nice pears?” “Yes, very,” said the little pig. “I will throw you down one;” and he threw it so far that while the wolf was going to pick it up, the little pig jumped down and ran home.
