RED RIDING HOOD ARRIVES AT THE COTTAGE.

“Poor Grannie,” said Red Riding Hood, “I have brought you some soup to make you better.” “Thank you, my dear,” said the Wolf in a weak voice, “I like you better than soup.” “But what large eyes you have Grannie!” said the child. “The better to see you with my dear, said the Wolf with a grin.

Silverlocks From The Three Bears

And, as the door stood open, in walked boldly,

This child, whose name was Silverlocks, I’m told;

There was nobody there to treat her coldly,

No friend to call her back, no nurse to scold.

She found herself within a parlour charming;

And there upon the table were placed

Three basins, sending up a smell so warming,

That she at once felt hungry, and must taste.

The largest basin first, but hot and biting

The soup was in it, and the second too;

The smallest basin tasted so inviting,

That up she ate it all, with small ado.
