NELL AND HER BIRD.

Good-by, little birdie !

Fly to the sky, Singing and singing

A merry good-by. Tell all the birdies

Flying above, Nell, in the garden,

Sends them her love.
Tell how I found you,

Hurt, in a tree;
Then, when they're wounded,

They'll come right to me.
I'd like to go with you,

If I could fly;
It must be so beautiful,

Up in the sky !
Why, little birdie-

Why don't you go ? You sit on my finger,

And shake your head, “No.” He's off! O how quickly

And gladly he rose !
I know he will love me

Wherever he goes.

I know-for he really

Seemed trying to say, “My dear little Nelly,

I can't go away.”

But just then some birdies

Came flying along, And sang, as they neared us,

A chirruping song; And he felt just as I do

When girls come and shout Right under the window,

' Come, Nelly—come out !”

66

It's wrong to be sorry;

I ought to be glad ; But he's the best birdie

That ever I had.
