Sivu 72 - SPEAK gently ! it is better far To rule by love than fear ; Speak gently ! let not harsh words mar The good we might do here.
Sivu 71 - January brings the snow, Makes our feet and fingers glow. February brings the rain, Thaws the frozen lake again. March brings breezes loud and shrill, Stirs the dancing daffodil. April brings the primrose sweet, Scatters daisies at our feet. May brings flocks of pretty lambs, Skipping by their fleecy dams. June brings tulips, lilies, roses, Fills the children's hands with posies. Hot July brings cooling showers, Apricots, and gilliflowers.
Sivu 73 - BE kind to each other! The night's coming on, When friend and when brother Perchance may be gone ! Then midst our dejection, How sweet to have earned The blest recollection Of kindness — returned!
Sivu 69 - Direct, control, suggest this day, All I design, or do, or say ; That all my powers, with all their might, In Thy sole glory may unite...
Sivu 84 - God might have bade the earth bring forth Enough for great and small, The oak-tree and the cedar-tree, Without a flower at all. We might have had enough, enough For every want of ours, For luxury, medicine and toil, And yet have had no flowers. The ore within the mountain mine Requireth none to grow; Nor doth it need the lotus-flower To make the river flow.
Sivu 72 - HIGHER, higher will we climb Up the mount of glory, That our names may live through time In our country's story ; Happy, when her welfare calls, He who conquers, he who falls. Deeper, deeper let us toil In the mines of knowledge ; Nature's wealth and learning's spoil Win from school and college ; Delve we there for richer gems Than the stars of diadems.
Sivu 79 - The interjection shows surprise, As, Oh, how pretty! Ah, how wise! The whole are called nine parts of speech, Which reading, writing, speaking, teach.
Sivu 71 - Skipping by their fleecy dams. June brings tulips, lilies, roses, Fills the children's hands with posies. Hot July brings cooling showers, Apricots and gillyflowers. August brings the sheaves of corn, Then the harvest home is borne.
Sivu 70 - WHATEVER brawls disturb the street, There should be peace at home; Where sisters dwell and brothers meet Quarrels should never come. Birds in their little nests agree ; And 'tis a shameful sight, When children of one family Fall out, and chide, and fight. Hard names at first, and threatening words, That are but noisy breath, May grow to clubs and naked swords, To murder and to death.
Sivu 72 - Speak gently to the little child ! Its love be sure to gain ; Teach it in accents soft and mild ; It may not long remain.
