How To Make A Christmas Pudding How To Make A Christmas Pudding

How To Make A Christmas Pudding
Now, little Sophy, come with me, To make a pudding you shall see; Now sit quite still, and see me do it; See, here's the flour and the suet. The suet must be chopped quite small, For it should scarce be seen at all; A pound of each will nicely suit, To which I put two pounds of fruit. One is of currants, one of plums...

Poisonous Fruit
As Tommy and his sister Jane Were walking down a shady lane, They saw some berries, bright and red, That hung around and overhead; And soon the bough they bended down, To make the scarlet fruit their own; And part they ate, and part, in play, They threw about, and flung away. But long they had not been at home Before poor Jane and little... Poems - Post by : freedom - Date : October 2011 - Author : Elizabeth Turner - Read : 2090

Stupid William Stupid William

Stupid William
William has a silly trick-- On everything his hand he lays; He made himself extremely sick, One morning, by his greedy ways. I promised him I'd write it here (Although he owns he's much to blame), That all may read it far and near, Lest other boys should do the same. No scatter'd bits his eye can pass,...

Sammy Smith's Sad Fate
Sammy Smith would drink and eat, From morning until night; He filled his mouth so full of meat, It was a shameful sight. Sometimes he gave a book or toy For apple, cake, or plum; And grudged if any other boy Should taste a single crumb. Indeed he ate and drank so fast, And used...

The Lost Pudding
Miss Kitty was rude at the table one day, And would not sit still on her seat; Regardless of all that her mother could say, From her chair little Kitty kept running away All the time they were eating their meat. As soon as she saw that the beef was remov'd, She ran to her chair in great haste; But her mother such giddy behaviour reprov'd...

Civil Speech
"Give me some beer!" cried little Jane, At dinner-table as she sat. Her mother said, "Pray ask again, And in a prettier way than that.

What Is Best For Children
"Mamma, why mayn't I, when we dine, Eat ham and goose, and drink white wine? And pray, why may not I, like you, Have soup and fish, and mutton too?" "Because, my dear, it is not right To spoil a youthful appetite; By things unwholesome, though enjoy'd, The infant appetite is cloy'd.

He thought it clever to deceive, And often ramble without leave; And ev'ry animal he met He dearly loved to plague and fret. But all such boys, unless they mend, May come to an unhappy end,...
