Page 77 - To view the structure of that little work A bird's nest. Mark it well, within, without ; No tool had he that wrought ; no knife to cut ; No nail to fix ; no bodkin to insert ; No glue to join ; his little beak was all ; And yet, how neatly finished ! What nice hand, With every implement and means of art, And twenty years...
Page 77 - ... spring is very pleasant ! there will be daisies, and cowslips, and a great many pretty flowers ; there will be blossoms and green leaves upon the trees ; and there will be young lambs, and chickens, and goslings. The birds will sing sweetly ; and they will be very busy picking up bits of hay, and moss, and wool, to build their nests with : and the cuckoo will sing cuckoo, cuckoo.

They will do you no good ; and the old birds, who have taken so much pains to build their nests, will be ver'-y sor'-ry, in-deed', to lose their eggs, and their young ones. You can'-not feed the young birds so well as they can ; nor take so good care of them ; nor keep them warm at night. Some little boys who steal young birds from their soft, com'-fort-a-ble nests, and from the pa'-rent birds, soon grow tired of them, and...
Page 77 - But most of all it wins my admiration, To view the structure of this little work, A bird's nest. Mark it well, within, without. No tool had he that wrought, no knife to cut, No nail to fix, no bodkin to insert, No glue to join; his little beak was all. And yet how neatly finish'd !
