Page 74 - 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.
Page 73 - 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.
Page 75 - 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!

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.
Page 81 - The interjection shows surprise, As, Oh, how pretty! Ah, how wise! The whole are called nine parts of speech, Which reading, writing, speaking, teach.
Page 73 - 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.
Page 72 - 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.
