For we lodg'd in one Barn

The cold Part of a Year.

THEN in came the Squirrel,

And cock'd up his Tail,
And hop'd that the Party

On a small Bag of Nuts

He had brought from the Wopdj
If they'd please but to try,

They would prove very good.

Besides a whole Lapful

Of excellent Crumbs.

COCK ROBIN AND JENNY WREN. 25



Drinking Health to the Bride

Now they all sat or stood,

To eat and to drink;

They each took a Bumper, V

And drank to the Pair,
Cock Robin the Bridegroom,

And Jenny the Pair.

The Cuckoo's Rudeness to
Jenny.



WHEN in came the Cukoo,

And made a great Rout j
He caught hold of Jenny,

And pull'd her about.
Cock Robin was angry,

And so was the Sparrow,
Who now is preparing

His Bow and his Arrow.

Which occasioned the Death
of the gallant Robin.



His Aim then he took ;

But he took it not right :
His Skill was not good,

Or he shot in a Fright ;
For the Cuckoo he miss'd;

But Cock Robin he kilPd;
And all the Birds mourn'd,

That his Blood was so spilPd,
