SNEEZING

If you sneeze on Monday, you sneeze for danger;
Sneeze on a Tuesday, kiss a stranger;
Sneeze on a Wednesday, sneeze for a letter;
Sneeze on a Thursday, something better. 
Sneeze on a Friday, sneeze for sorrow;
Sneeze on a Saturday, joy to-morrow.

PUSSY-CAT BY THE FIRE

Pussy-cat sits by the fire;
    How can she be fair? 
In walks the little dog;
    Says:  “Pussy, are you there? 
How do you do, Mistress Pussy? 
    Mistress Pussy, how d’ye do?”
“I thank you kindly, little dog,
    I fare as well as you!”

WHEN THE SNOW IS ON THE GROUND

The little robin grieves
    When the snow is on the ground,
For the trees have no leaves,
    And no berries can be found.

The air is cold, the worms are hid;
    For robin here what can be done? 
Let’s strow around some crumbs of bread,
    And then he’ll live till snow is gone.
