FAIRIES
WHERE the scythe cuts and the sock rives,
Ha'e done with fairies and bee bykes !

He who tills the fairies' green,

No luck again shall ha'e ;
And he who spoils the fairies' ring,

Betide him want and wae ;
For windless days and weary nights

Are his till his dying day.

TO BANBURY CROSS.

RIDE a cockhorse

To Banbury Cross,
To see what Tommy can buy ;

A penny white loaf,

A penny white cake,
And a twopenny apple pie.

JOHN SMITH.
Is John Smith within ?
Yes, that he is.
Can he set on a shoe?
Ay, marry, two.
Here a nail, there a nail,
Tick, tack, too.

THE DOGGIES GAED TO THE MILL.
THE doggies gaed to the mill,
This way and that way;
They took a lick out o' this wife's pock,
And a lick out o' that wife's pock,
And a loup in the lead and a dip in the dam,
And gaed home walloping, walloping, walloping.

THE CORBIES HOLE.
Put your finger in the corbies' hole,
The corbie is not at home;
The corbie is at the back door

Picking a bone. [The reciter of these lines closes one hand into the form of a tube,

and holds two fingers of the other hand in readiness, at the end of the tube, to pinch any finger that may be inserted.]
