  2. 2. Table Manners<br />The Goops are gluttonous and rude,<br />They gug and gumble with their food;<br />They throw their crumbs upon the floor,<br />And at dessert they tease for more;<br />They will not eat their soup and bread<br />But like to gobble sweets instead<br />And this is why I oft decline,<br />When I am asked to stay and dine!<br /> -Gelett Burgess<br />

  4. 4. Lullabye<br />Sleep, baby , sleep<br />The large stars are the sheep;<br />The little stars are lambs, I guess;<br />The gentle moon’s the shepherdess:<br />Sleep, baby, sleep.<br />-Author Unknown<br />
  5. 5. The Tower<br />There was a young girl on a tower<br />Who looked just as fresh as a flower.<br />Her hair was like silk,<br />Her skin smooth as milk,<br />But her breath made the strongest knight cower.<br />_ Author Unknown<br />
  6. 6. The Ram<br />On my way to Hampton,<br />One fine Autumn day,<br />I met the biggest ram<br />That was ever fed on hay.<br />This ram was fat in fore and aft.<br />He stood ‘bout ten yards high,<br />The wool upon his back.<br />Reached way up to the sky.<br />The space between his horns,<br />Was so far no one could reach,<br />He could prob’ly eat a mountain,<br />But I handed him my peach.<br />-Author Unknown<br />
