JOY ALLISON Minnie and Mattie Minnie and Mattie And fat little May, Out in the country, Spending a day. Such a bright day, With the sun glowing, And the trees half in leaf, And the grass growing. Pinky-white pigling Squeals through his snout, Woolly-white lambkin Frisks all about. Cluck! Cluck! the mother hen Summons her folk,— Ducklings all downy soft, Yellow as yolk. Cluck! Cluck! the mother hen Summons her chickens To peck the dainty bits Found in her pickings. Minnie and Mattie And May carry posies, Half of sweet violets, Half of primroses.

Not a breath can stir But he's up with a whir And a big bow-wow gives he, And with tail on end, He'll the house defend Far better than lock or key. —Scotch Nursery Rhyme The North Wind Doth Blow The north wind doth blow And we shall have snow, And what will poor robin do then?

Like the lambs we little children Have a shepherd kind and good; It is God who watches o'er us, Gives us life and daily food.
