Elizabeth Elspeth Betsey and Bess

Elizabeth, Elspeth, Betsey, and Bess,
They all went together,
To seek a bird's nest;
They found a bird's nest,
With five eggs in,
They all took one,
And left four in.

Bessies Song To Her Doll

Matilda Jane, you never look
At any toy or picture-book.
I show you pretty things in vain--
You must be blind, Matilda Jane!

I ask you riddles, tell you tales,
But all our conversation fails.
You never answer me again--
I fear you're dumb, Matilda Jane!

Matilda darling, when I call,
You never seem to hear at all.
I shout with all my might and main--
But you're so deaf, Matilda Jane!

Matilda Jane, you needn't mind,
For, though you're deaf and dumb and blind,
There's some one loves you, it is plain--
And that is me, Matilda Jane!
