THE WONDERFUL LADIES.
EVERY lady in this land
Has twenty nails upon each hand
Five and twenty on hands and feet

All this is true without deceit. [As you will find, if you pause at the right places.]

RIDDLE ME, RIDDLE ME.
RIDDLE me, riddle me, rot tot tot,
A little wee man in a red, red coat;
A staff in his hand and a stone in his throat,
Riddle me, riddle me, rot tot tot. [A Cherry.]

LADYBIRD, FLY AWAY HOME!
LADYBIRD, ladybird, fly away home,
Your house is a-fire, your children all gone,
All but one that lies under a stone;
Fly thee home, ladybird, ere it be gone!

ARITHMETIC.
MULTIPLICATION is vexation,
Division's twice as bad ;
The Rule of Three it puzzles me,
And Fractions drive me mad !

THE MEETING OF THE KINGS.

THERE was a king met a king,

In a narrow lane;
Says this king to that king,

“Where have you been?
“Oh, I've been a hunting,

With my dog and my doe."
“Pray lend him to me,

That I may do so."
“There's the dog, TAKE the dog."

“What's the dog's name?”
“ I've told you already."

“Pray tell me again."

Two legs sat upon three legs,
With one leg in his lap;
In comes four legs,
And runs away with one leg;
Up jumps two legs,
Catches up three legs,
Throws it after four legs,
And makes him bring back one leg.

[One leg is a leg of mutton; two legs a man; three legs a stool; and four legs a dog.]

THE MONTHS. THIRTY days hath September, April, June, and November; All the rest have thirty-one; Excepting February alone, Which hath but twenty-eight days clear, And twenty-nine in each leap year.
