A DEWDROP.

Little drop of dew,
  Like a gem you are;
I believe that you
  Must have been a star.

When the day is bright,
  On the grass you lie;
Tell me then, at night
  Are you in the sky?

BEES.

Bees don’t care about the snow;
I can tell you why that’s so: 

Once I caught a little bee
Who was much too warm for me!

* * * * *

Baa, baa, black sheep,
  Have you any wool? 
Yes, marry, have I,
  Three bags full;

One for my master,
  And one for my dame,
But none for the little boy
  Who cries in the lane.

* * * * *

Bless you, bless you, burnie bee;
Say, when will your wedding be? 
If it be to-morrow day,
Take your wings and fly away.

* * * * *

Bow, wow, wow,
Whose dog art thou? 
Little Tom Tinker’s dog,
Bow, wow, wow.

* * * * *

Bye, baby bunting,
Daddy’s gone a-hunting,
To get a little rabbit skin
To wrap the baby bunting in.

* * * * *

Star light, star bright,
First star I see to-night;
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Have the wish I wish to-night.
