How I shall miss you When you're grown golden and high! But I shall send all the bees up to kiss you; Little brown brother, good-by!

Shriek, wind, shriek! Make the branches creak! Battle with the boughs till break o' day! In a snow-cave warm and tight, Through the icy winter night The rabbit sleeps the peaceful hours away. Call, wind, call! In entry and in hall! Straight from off the mountain white and wild! Soft purrs the pussy-cat, On her little fluffy mat, And beside her nestles close her furry child.

To the next shelter Maybe a mile Sudden the wee Elf Smiled a wee smile. Tugged till the toadstool Toppled in two Holding it over him Gayly he flew. Soon he was safe home, Dry as could be. Soon woke the Dormouse "Good gracious me! " Loud he lamented, And that's how umbrellas First were invented. —OLIVER HERFORD Old Dame Cricket Old Dame Cricket, down in a thicket, Brought up her children nine,— Queer little chaps, in glossy black caps And brown little suits so fine.
