SONGS FOR THE NUIiSERY.
A guard of cucumbers and capers
Accompanied their mighty lord; Their muskets all were charged with pepper,
Of onion-peel was every sword. Upon a throne sublime of pancakes
The royal couple proudly sat; Bonbons were flowing from their pockets
From morn till even, and after that!
But wicked fairy Carabossa,
Inspired, no doubt, by jealous spite,
Just lifted up her ugly hump, and Upset this palace of delight.
MORAL BY THE CHILDREN.
Some sugar pray give us, Dear father and mother,
And we'll do our utmost To build up auother.
Do you forget already, sir,
All you've been taught to do ?
Now, look at me, and pray attend:
Give me your right-hand paw ! No! that is not the right one, Spitz ;
I've told you that before.
When I say " Trust," you know, dear Spitz,
Your honor is concerned; You would not gobble up the cake
Because my back was turned!
And you must learn to balance things
Upon your shiny nose; And, Spitz, be careful when you walk,
To turn out well your toes.
Some day I'll teach you, Spitz, to walk
Upon two legs, like me ; But then, old Spitz, you must behave
With more gentility.
Your paw again. You shocking dog!
With all the pains I've taken, To find iu right and left paw still
You always are mistaken !
Mrs. Chakles Heaton.
O Spitz ! this really is too bad� A dog brought up like you!
