D

THIS Duckling is his loving parents’ treasure and their pride;

He has a Bow-wow Nursie, that takes him out to ride;

And the darling, in his carriage, looks so pretty and so sweet,

He’s gushed o’er by all lady Ducks the road they meet.

E

AN Elephant went fishing, once, but though he fished with zeal,

He didn’t catch a single thing, except a slippery Eel.

It tried to squirm away from him, – ” No use, dear boy!” he cried;

“I can not bear to part with you; I dearly love Eels – fried!”

F

A FROG that met a Fox, one morning, walking on the shore ;

Cried, ” Foxy, why, I never knew you cared for Fish, before!”

“Well, Froggy, Geese are scarce just now,” the Fox said, with a grin,

“And if I don’t eat something, I’m afraid I’ll get too thin.”
