Strona 77 - To view the structure of that little work A bird's nest. Mark it well, within, without ; No tool had he that wrought ; no knife to cut ; No nail to fix ; no bodkin to insert ; No glue to join ; his little beak was all ; And yet, how neatly finished ! What nice hand, With every implement and means of art, And twenty years...
Strona 47 - A LITTLE boy, about seven years old, was on a visit to a lady, who was very fond of him.
Strona 77 - ... spring is very pleasant ! there will be daisies, and cowslips, and a great many pretty flowers ; there will be blossoms and green leaves upon the trees ; and there will be young lambs, and chickens, and goslings. The birds will sing sweetly ; and they will be very busy picking up bits of hay, and moss, and wool, to build their nests with : and the cuckoo will sing cuckoo, cuckoo.

Strona 9 - what is the meaning of the words cherubim and seraphim, which we meet with in the Holy Scriptures ?" " Cherubim," replied his father, " is a Hebrew word, signifying knowledge; seraphim is another word of the same language, and signifies flame.

Strona 78 - Lit'-tle boys ! why should you take a-way' the eggs, and the young birds ? They will do you no good ; and the old birds, who have taken so much pains to build their nests, will be ver'-y sor'-ry, in-deed', to lose their eggs, and their young ones. You can'-not feed the young birds so well as they can ; nor take so good care of them ; nor keep them warm at night. Some little boys who steal young birds from their soft, com'-fort-a-ble nests, and from the pa'-rent birds, soon grow tired of them, and...
Strona 77 - But most of all it wins my admiration, To view the structure of this little work, A bird's nest. Mark it well, within, without. No tool had he that wrought, no knife to cut, No nail to fix, no bodkin to insert, No glue to join; his little beak was all. And yet how neatly finish'd ! What nice hand, With ev'ry implement and means of art, And twenty years apprenticeship to boot, Could make me such another?
Strona 51 - I have been very unhappy ever since. And I am afraid to go to sleep, lest that Heavenly Father whom you so often tell me of, should be angry with me. You say he knows and sees every thing. What shall I do that he may forgive me ?
