The Infant’s Delight – 03

Primary Poems | 6-8 yrs | Reading Pod

KEEP-ING SCHOOL.

Oh, tell me if e-ver you knew
A teach-er who looked so se-vere
As sis-ter Ma-ri-a can do,
When les-sons she’s go-ing to hear?

Just look how she holds up her cane
And frowns, as she threat-ens each one!
But yet they’ll not cry or com-plain,
Be-cause it is only in fun.

The dunce’s cap Dol-ly must wear,
Her task was not learnt very well;
And now lit-tle Jane, I de-clare,
Pre-tends she’s un-a-ble to spell.

Yet sis-ter may hold up her cane,
And though they’ll look so-lemn, each one,
From laugh-ter they scarce can re-frain.
Be-cause it is only in fun.

SNAP AP-PLE.

“Come, while it spins round, try your luck;
Come, E-thel, and Kate, and your bro-thers!
On two ends two ap-ples are stuck,
And an on-ion on each of the o-thers.
Be ready, and snap as they pass,
Be quick, if you mean to be right,
Or not the sweet ap-ples, a-las!
‘Twill be, but the on-ions, you’ll bite.”

MILK-ING TIME.

Through the long day the cows are seen
All graz-ing as they go,
Wan-der-ing a-long the mea-dows green
Where yel-low hawk-weeds grow.

But when the clock with-in the tower
Strikes five, they al-ways pace
Slow-ly—for well they know the hour—
Home to the milk-ing place.

Then in the yard quite still they stand,
Swing-ing their la-zy tails,
Where Ann and Su-san are at hand
With stools and milk-ing pails

I love to see the white milk flow,
And in the pail froth up;
And Ann, who is so kind, I know,
Will let me fill my cup.
