Squirrel, that acorns and nuts loves to hide,
String, with which Susan’s great bandbox was tied.
Shell – on the beach what a number we found!
Spade, papa uses to dig up the ground.
Swan, that so gracefully floats on the stream.
Sun, that arises with silvery beam.
Strawberry, too, a soft fruit very sweet.
Shoes, papa buys me to wear on my feet,
Sleep, for dear baby; and Shed, for the Sheep,
Sickle, a round knife, with which the men reap.
Spectacles, like grandma wears on her nose.
Snowdrop, the earliest spring flower that blows.
Ship, a large vessel that sails on the Sea.
Slate – mamma says she will buy one for me.
Sunday, the day when in God’s house we bow.
Stool, like Jane sits on, when milking the cow.
Scissors, we cut with: Sieve, Sermon, and Shower.
And Sceptre, well known as the emblem of power.
