Young Charlottie
"Oh no, oh no!" young Charlottie cried, as she
laughed like a gipsy queen, " To ride in blankets muffled up, I never would be
seen. My silken coat is quite enough, you know it is lined
throughout, And there is my silken scarf to wrap my head and
neck about."
Her bonnet and her gloves were on, she jumped into
the sleigh, And swiftly slid down the mountain side and over
the hills away. All muffled up so silent, five miles at last were past When Charlie with few but shivering words, the
silence broke at last.
" Such a dreadful night I never saw, my reins I can
scarcely hold." Young Charlottie then feebly said, " I am exceedingly
cold." He cracked his whip and urged his speed much
faster than before, While at least five other miles in silence had passed
Spoke Charles, " How fast the freezing ice is gath­ering on my brow! "
Young Charlottie then feebly said, " I'm growing warmer now."
