THE VOWEL SOUNDS.                                   47
The thumb placed sideways will separate the teeth by about half an inch ; place the tip of the tongue under the part of the thumb overhanging the lower teeth, wrap the lips lightly around the thumb, but keep them closer to the teeth than for 00. The lips should not be so protruded for Oh as they are for 00, but they must not be tightened over the teeth, they should lie about midway between a pout and an affected position.
Nut.—The position is flatter than for Oh, and the open­ing of the mouth is diminished in size by the raising of the lower jaw.
Home, home, home sweet home,
There's no place like home, there's no place like home.
And slowly, slowly, more and more
The moony vapour rolling round the King.
Lead out the pageant: sad and slow
As fits an universal woe,
Let the long, long procession go,
And let the sorrowing crowd ahout it grow,
And let the mournful martial music hlow;
The last great Englishman is low.
Heard a carol, mournful, holy Chanted loudly, chanted lowly, Till her blood was frozen slowly, And her eyes were darkened wholly, Turned to tower'd Camelot.
All day the wind breathes low with mellower tone,
Through every hollow cave and alley lone ;
Round and round the spicy downs the yellow lotus dust is blown.
Love may come, and love may go, But I will love no more, no more.
