CECILY PARSLEY'S

NURSERY RHYMES

BEATRIX POTTER

F. WARNE & CO.

Though flattered by imitators galore Miss Potter's work stands supreme.
Her many picture stories should be among the first books owned by
children.

[Illustration]

Cecily Parsley lived in a pen,
And brewed good ale for gentlemen;

Gentlemen came every day,
Till Cecily Parsley ran away.

[Illustration]

Goosey, goosey, gander,
Whither will you wander?
Upstairs and downstairs,
And in my lady's chamber!

This pig went to market;
This pig stayed at home;

[Illustration]

[Illustration]

This pig had a bit of meat;

And this pig had none;

[Illustration]

[Illustration]

This little pig cried
Wee! wee! wee!
I can't find my way home.

[Illustration]

Pussy-cat sits by the fire;
How should she be fair?
In walks the little dog,
Says "Pussy! are you there?"

[Illustration]

"How do you do, Mistress Pussy?
Mistress Pussy, how do you do?"
"I thank you kindly, little dog,
I fare as well as you!"

Three blind mice, three blind mice,
See how they run!
They all run after the farmer's wife,
And she cut off their tails with a carving knife,
Did you ever see such a thing in your life
As three blind mice!

[Illustration]

[Illustration]

Bow, wow, wow!
Whose dog art thou?
"I'm little Tom Tinker's dog,
Bow, wow, wow!"

We have a little garden,
A garden of our own,
And every day we water there
The seeds that we have sown.

[Illustration]

We love our little garden,
And tend it with such care,
You will not find a faded leaf
Or blighted blossom there.

[Illustration]

[Illustration]

Ninny nanny netticoat,
In a white petticoat,
With a red nose, -
The longer she stands,
The shorter she grows.
