and tired —and they fell fast asleep right at the table. Then they dreamed of real, good things to eat — the kind that they had at home and that they had on the Picnic.

And while they were sleeping—

Now what do you s’pose

Was set down before them.

Right under each nose?

They dreamed of a cupboard

With good things to eat—

And strange little figures

To bring on the treat.

And down came the good things

From nhigh pantry shelves –

They were whisked to the table

By fairies and elves!

So Billy and Betty

They slept through the night –

And they hated to wake

From such a delight!
