THE STAR.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star;
How I wonder what you are,
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky!

When the glorious sun is set,
When the grass with dew is wet,
Then you show your little light,
Twinkle, twinkle, all the night.

I SEE THE MOON.

I see the moon, and the moon sees me; God bless the moon, and God bless me.

Sixty seconds hath a minute,
Sixty minutes hath an hour,
But a second hath within it
Sixty jiffies full of power.

RHYMES.

Hickory, dickory, dock,
The mouse ran up the clock.

The clock struck one,

And down he did run,
Hickory, dickory, dock.

A diller, a dollar,
A ten o'clock scholar,
What makes you come so soon?
You used to come at ten o'clock,
But now you come at noon.

EARLY to bed and early to rise,
Is the way to be healthy and wealthy and wise.
