MOTHER GOOSE'S NURSERY RHYMES.



OLD MOTHER GOOSE.



OLD Mother Goose, when
She wanted to wander,

Would ride through the air
On a very 'fine gander.

Mother Goose had a house,
'T was built in a wood,

Where an owl at the door
For sentinel stood.

This is her son Jack,
A plain-looking lad,

He is not very good,
Nor yet very bad.

She sent him to market,
A live goose he bought,

" Here, mother," says he,
" It will not go for nought.'

Jack's goose and her gander

Grew very fond,
They 'd both eat together,

Or swim in one pond.

9




"SHE SENT HIM TO MARKET, A LIVE GOOSE HE BOUGHT."



OLD MOTHER GOOSE. II

Jack found one fine morning

As I have been told,
His goose had laid him

An egg of pure gold.

Jack rode to his mother,

The news for to tell,
She called him a good boy

And said it was well.

Jack sold his gold egg

To a rogue of a Jew,
Who cheated him out of

The half of his due.



Then Jack went a-courting

A lady so gay,
As fair as the lily,

And sweet as the May.

The Jew and the Squire
Came behind his back,

And began to belabour
The sides of poor Jack.



And then the gold egg
Was thrown into the sea,






MOTHER GOOSE'S NURSERY RHYMES.




When Jack he jumped in,
And got it back presently.

The Jew got the goose,

Which he vowed he would kill,
Resolving at once

His pockets to fill.



OLD MOTHER GOOSE.




Jack's mother came in,

And caught the goose soon,
And mounting its back,

Flew up to the moon.



MOTHER GOOSES NURSERY RHYMES.




BOYS and girls, come out to play,
The moon does shine as bright as day,
Leave your supper, and leave your sleep,
And meet your playfellows in the street;
Come with a whoop, and come with a call,
And come with a good will, or not at all.
Up the ladder and down the wall,
A halfpenny loaf will serve us all.
You find milk and I '11 find flour,
And we '11 have a pudding in half an hour.

THE WALRUS AND THE CARPENTER.*

THE sun was shining on the sea,

Shining with all his might :
He did his very best to make

The billows smooth and bright
And this was >odd, because it was

The middle of the night.

The moon was shining sulkily,
Because she thought the sun
Had got no business to be there

After the day was done
"It's very rude of him," she said,
" To come and spoil the fun ! "

The sea was wet as wet could be,

The sands were dry as dry.
You could not see a cloud, because

No cloud was in the sky :
No birds were flying overhead

There were no birds to fly.



The Walrus and the Carpenter
Were walking close at hand ;

They wept like anything to see

Such quantities of sand :
"If this were only cleared away,"
They said, " it would be grand ! "

* By permission of the Author.
42



THE WALRUS AND THE CARPENTER.

" If seven maids with seven mops

Swept it for half a year,
Do you suppose," the Walrus said,
" That they could get it clear ? "
"I doubt it," said the Carpenter,
And shed a bitter tear.



43




" O Oysters, come and walk with us !

The Walrus did beseech.
" A pleasant walk, a pleasant talk,

Along the briny beach :
We cannot do with more than four,

To give a hand to each."



The eldest Oyster looked at him,
But never a word he said :

The eldest Oyster winked his eye,
And shook his heavy head

Meaning to say he did not choose
To leave the oyster-bed.



44 MOTHER GOOSE'S NURSERY RHYMES.

But four young Oysters hurried up,

All eager for the treat :
Their coats were brushed, their faces washed,

Their shoes were clean and neat
And this was odd, because, you know,

They hadn't any feet.

Four other Oysters followed them,

And yet another four ;
And thick and fast they came at last,

And more, and more, and more
All hopping through the frothy waves,

And scrambling to the shore.



The Walrus and the Carpenter

Walked on a mile or so,
And then they rested on a rock

Conveniently low :
And all the little Oysters stood

And waited in a row.

" The time has come," the Walrus said,
" To talk of many things :
Of shoes and ships and sealing-wax-

Of cabbages and kings
And why the sea is boiling hot
And whether pigs have wings."

" But wait a bit," the Oysters cried,
" Before we have our chat ;
For some of us are out of breath,

And all of us are fat ! "
" No hurry ! " said the Carpenter.
They thanked him much for that.



THE WALRUS AND THE CARPENTER.



45




" A loaf of bread," the Walrus said,
"Is what we chiefly need :
Pepper and vinegar besides
Are very good indeed
Now if you're ready, Oysters dear,
We can begin to feed."

" But not on us ! " the Oysters cried,

Turning a little blue.
" After such kindness, that would be

A dismal thing to do ! "
" The night is fine," the Walrus said.
" Do vou admire the view ?



"It was so kind of you to come !

And you are very nice ! "
The Carpenter said nothing but
" Cut us another slice :
I wish you were not quite so deaf
I Ve had to ask you twice ! "



46 MOTHER GOOSE'S NURSERY RHYMES.

" It seems a shame," the Walrus said,
" To play them such a trick,
After we've brought them out so far,

And made them trot so quick ! "
The Carpenter said nothing but
" The butter 's spread too thick ! "




" I weep for you," the Walrus said :
" I deeply sympathize."
With sobs and tears he sorted out

Those of the largest size,
Holding his pocket-handkerchief
Before his streaming eyes.



"O Oysters," said the Carpenter,
" You Ve had a pleasant run !
Shall we be trotting home again ? "

But answer there came none
And this was scarcely odd, because
They'd eaten every one.

LEWIS CARROLL.



A MAN WENT HUNTING AT REIGATE. 47

And wished to jump over a high gate ;
Says the owner, " Go round,
With your horse and your hound,
For you never shall leap over my gate."

"THERE WAS AN OWL LIVED is AN OAK.'



50



GOOD KING ARTHUR. 5T

There was an Owl lived in an oak,

Whiskey, Whaskey, Weedle ;
And all the words he ever spoke

Were Fiddle, Faddle, Feedle.
A sportsman chanced to come that way,

Whiskey, Whaskey, Weedle;
Says he, " I '11 shoot you, silly bird,

So Fiddle, Faddle, Feedle!"




GOOD KING ARTHUR.

WHEN good King Arthur ruled this land,

He was a goodly King ;
He bought three pecks of barley-meal,

To make a bag-pudding.

A bag-pudding the King did make,
And stuffed it well with plums,

And in it put great lumps of fat,
As big as my two thumbs.

The King and Queen did eat thereof,

And noblemen beside ;
And what they could not eat that night,

The Queen next morning fried.

WHO STOLE THE BIRD'S-NEST?



TO-WHIT! to-whit! to-whee !
Will you listen to me ?
Who stole four eggs I laid,
And the nice nest. I made ?

Not I, said the cow, moo-oo !
Such a thing I 'd never do.
I gave you a wisp of hay,
But did not take your nest

away;

Not I, said the cow, moo-oo !
Such a thing I 'd never do.

Bob-o-link ! Bob-o-link !
Now, what do you think ?
Who stole a nest away
From the plum-tree to-day ?




54 MOTHER GOOSE'S NURSERY RHYMES.

Not I, said the dog, bow-wow !
I wouldn't be so mean, I vow.
I gave some hairs the nest to

make,

But the nest I did not take ;
Not I, said the dog, bow-wow !
I would not be so mean, I vow.

Coo-coo ! coo-coo ! coo-coo !
Let me speak a word or two :
Who stole that pretty nest
From little Robin Redbreast ?

Not I, said the sheep ; oh, no,
I would not treat a poor bird

so;

I gave the wool the nest to line,
But the nest was none of mine.
Baa ! baa ! said the sheep ; oh,

no!
I wouldn't treat a poor bird so.

V Caw ! caw ! cried the crow,
I should like to know
What thief took away
A bird's-nest to-day.




WHO STOLE THE EIRD'S-NEST?

Chuck ! chuck ! said the hen,
Don't ask me again ;
Why, I haven't a chick
Would do such a trick.
We all gave her a feather,
And she wove them together.
I 'd scorn to intrude
On her and her brood.
Chuck ! chuck ! said the hen,
Don't ask me again.



55




Chirr-a- whirr ! chirr-a- whirr !
We will make a great stir.
Let us find out his name,
And all cry For shame !

A little boy hung down his

head,
And went and hid behind the

bed;

For he stole that pretty nest
From little Robin Redbreast ;
And he felt so full of shame
He did not like to tell his name.





"THERE WAS A JOLLY MILLER."
56



THERE WAS A JOLLY MILLER.

There was a jolly miller

Lived on the river Dee :
He worked and sang from morn till night,

No lark so blithe as he.
And this the burden of his song

For ever used to be

I care for nobody no ! not I,
Since nobody cares for me.

The man in brown soon brought him down,

Molly, my sister, and I fell out,

And what do you think it was about ?

She loved coffee, and I loved tea,

And that was the reason we couldn't agree.

His wife could eat no' lean ;

And so betwixt them both, you see,
They licked the platter clean.

Upon my word and honour.



HUSH, BABY, MY DOLL.

Hush, baby, my doll, I pray you don't cry,

And I '11 give you some bread, and some milk by-and-

Or perhaps you like custard, or, maybe, a tart,
Then to either you are welcome, with all my heart.

" My father's a farmer, sir," she said.

" What is your fortune, my pretty maid ? "

" My face is my fortune, sir," she said.

And as I suppose

Cut off his nose,
And popped it in the basin.
