A BABY LAY.


[Illustration]

I.

What does the kitten say?—"Mew, mew, mew!"

She shall have some nice milk, warm and new.


II.

Up jumps the do; and says, "Bow, wow, wow!

I'm as good as kitty, and I'm hungry now."


III.

What does the cow say?—"Moo, moo, moo!"

And the pretty little calf tries to say so, too.


IV.

"Baa," says the little lamb,—"baa, baa, baa!"

What does she mean?—Is she calling her mamma?


V.

[178]

The rooster struts around and cries, "Cock-a-doodle-do!"

As if that were just about the only thing he knew.


VI.

On the roof, the gentle dove says, "Coo, coo, coo!

Love me, little girls and boys, for I love you."


VII.

What does the hen say?—"Cluck, cluck, cluck!"

What does the bird say?—"Peep, peep, peep!"

As early in the morning she rouses us from sleep.


VIII.

What does our baby say?—"Goo, goo, goo!"

See the loving glance in her eyes so blue;

How we rush to take her, at the slightest call!

Oh! the darling baby is the sweetest pet of all.
