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.

See saw, Margery Daw,

Jacky shall have a new master:

Jacky must have but a penny a day

Because he can work no faster.

Time Won’t Wait For Me!

“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.

Jimmie’s Happy Veterans Day!

Illustration:  The Tale of Jimmie Piggy.  By Marjorie Manners  The Platt & Nourse Co.: New York. 1918.

“Jimmie,” said his brother Tom, as he gave the fish to his mamma, “let’s play we are sailors. We can use mamma’s tubs for boats, and fasten our flags onto them.”

“All right, Tom,” returned Jimmie, “we will play the tubs are battleships, and that we are the captains, and we can pretend to shoot big cannons at each other.”

This was great fun, and went along nicely until Jimmie got so excited that he tipped over his boat, and then there was a great squealing.
