-TH:14~ morning was pleasant, nd bright shone the sun : Said Manima, "My dear Charles, 1."o school you must run; How lou:d sing the birds, And how sweet smells the air, Haste, love, to the school, You ought now to be there." Then she tied on his hat, And t-old Charles to be good; And watched her dear boy 'Till he got to the wood.

PAGE 3

When he came to the wood He looked all around., "Ah ! here, surely here, May much pleasure be found. 'Twould be better by far To stay here all day, Than to walk on to school My hard lessons to say." But he found 'twould not answer To play all alone, So silently sad He sat do,vn on a stone.

A horse now advanced, Charles hoped he would stay, _ "0 Horse! (he exclaimed, ) I beseech you to play." "No, no, (cried the horse,) I must haste to the field; If the land is not ploughed No corn it will yield; And then, lazy Boy! You must go without bread: I never am idle ; " The nobJe horse said.

PAGE 7

Just then, he espied A dog running that way: "Oh! here is a playfellow, Honest old Tray!" So he hastened to meet him, And asked him to play: "No, no, (cried the dog,) Do not tempt me to stay; I must haste to the fold, T'he sheep I must guard: I never am iclle." Cried Charles, "'Uhis is hard."

"Why, how foolish it is To sit here and cry; I will hasten to school, And my tears I will dry; When I'm there I'll be steady, 4,.nd try to excel; For if I take pains I may learn to read well. Then I'll be attentive, My book I will mind; For he who is busy Is happy, I find."
