Poor little birdie,

out in the snow, No one to feed you,

nowhere to go! What will you do

to get out of the storm? Where will you go

to get yourself warm?

I'll open the window

and throw you a crumb, And open the door, too,

if you will but come! Poor little birdie,

out in the snow, No one to feed you,

nowhere to go!

WHAT GRANDFATHEK LONG LEGS SATS. Why do the children call me

"Grandfather Long Legs?" I am not their grandfather! Is it polite to talk of my long legs? I have seen longer legs than mine! Why do they say,

"without tooth or tongue?" Is it polite to talk to me so? Why do they ask me

to point my finger? How can I tell

if they are "wanted home?" They take me up by one leg. I do not like that at all. Please ask them to be kinder to me!

Lady Bug, Lady Bug,

Fly away, do; •
Fly to the mountain
And feed upon dew;

Feed upon dew,
And sleep on a rug,
And then run away
Like a good little bug!

Chinese Nursery Rhyme.

LADY BUG.

Little maiden, have you seen Lady Bug?

Does she feed upon dew?

Does she sleep on a rug?

What do you say to poor Lady Bug?

Do you say, "Your house is on fire?"

Do you say, "Your children will burn?"

Do you say, "Fly away home?"

Do you say, "Fly to the mountain?"

Each flower holds up
A little cup,

To catch the rain and dew;
The drink of flowers,
That comes in showers,

Is just the drink for you.

Unknown.
