What Polly Found In Her Stocking

With the first pale glimmer,
Of the morning red,
Polly woke delighted
And flew out of bed.

To the door she hurried,
Never stopped for clothes,
Though Jack Frost's cold fingers
Nipt her little toes.

There it hung! the stocking,
Long and blue and full;
Down it quickly tumbled
With a hasty pull.

Back she capered, laughing,
Happy little Polly;
For from out the stocking
Stared a splendid dolly!

Next, what most she wanted,
In a golden nut,
With a shining thimble,
Scissors that would cut.

Then a book all pictures,
"Children in the Wood."
And some scarlet mittens
Like her scarlet hood.

Next a charming jump-rope,
New and white and strong;
(Little Polly's stocking
Though small was very long,)

In the heel she fumbled,
"Something soft and warm,"
A rainbow ball of worsted
Which could do no harm.

In the foot came bon-bons,
In the toe a ring,
And some seeds of mignonette
Ready for the spring.

There she sat at daylight
Hugging close dear dolly;
Eating, looking, laughing,
Happy little Polly

The Bow That Has No Arrow

Which is the bow that has no arrow?
The rainbow that never killed a sparrow.
Which is the singer that has but one song?
The cuckoo, who singeth it all day long.
