A LITTLE GIRL'S PLEA FOR KINDNESS

TO ANIMALS.

BY MRS NEWTON CROSSLAND, LATE MISS TOULMIN.

see

Come, Rover! Ah, yes, by your tail wagging fast,
I
you

make out what I say,
Of our supper we're ready to give you a taste,

At the close of this long summer's day:
Though I know you're not hungry—not very, that is

For papa always strictly desires
That each animal kept in a dwelling of his

Should have all that its nature requires.

And the crumbs from our breakfast we scatter abroad,

For the birds that fly wild in the air : When the fruit-trees are bending beneath a rich load,

We will not deny them their share.
