CURRANTS.

HIGGLEDY, piggledy,

Here we lie;
Picked and plucked,

And put in a pie.
My first is snapping, snarling, growling;
My second's industrious, romping, prowling.

Higgledy, piggledy,

Here we lie;
Picked and plucked,

And put in a pie.

THE old man in the wilderness asked me :-
“How many strawberries grow in the sea ?”
I answered him, as I thought good
As many as red herrings grow in the wood.”

Employed while others sleep; What few would like to give away,

Nor any wish to keep.

AS I WAS GOING TO ST. IVES.

As I was going to St. Ives,
I met a man with seven wives;
Every wife had seven sacks,
Every sack had seven cats,
Every cat had seven kits.
Kits, cats, sacks, and wives,
How many were going to St. Ives ?

RELATIONSHIP.

[ocr errors]

THERE were three sisters in a hall,
There came a knight amongst them all.
“Good-morrow, aunt,” to the one,
"Good-morrow, aunt,” to the other,
"Good-morrow, gentlewoman," to the third ;

you were my aunt,
As the other two be,
I would say, Good-morrow,

Then, aunts three." [What relation was the third lady to him? Why, mother, of course.]
