Swift our time doth fly away;
Let's improve it while we may.
And in this our earth turns round;
When the Sabbath bells do sound.
Time, how quiokly does it run!
While we move around the sun.

January's when cold winds do blow;
MULTIPLICATION TABLE IN VERSE.
Three fives are fifteen sure;
Which wants two of a score.
Three eights are twenty-four;
Indeed it is no more.
That feed in Greenwich Park ;
Who rise up with the lark.
Young lambs that skip and play ;
Fine horses, fed with hay.
Four nines are thirty-six ;
Who leave off naughty tricks.
Who lose no time in play ;
Old farmers drest in grey.
With frocks so neat and clean;
Young Scots from Aberdeen.
Light horsemen, all in blue;
Will make but forty-two.
We here are safe from harm;
What's useful, too, we learn.

In reading, Children ought to know
Here I must stop, and count one, two.
And stop while counting one, two, three.
While I can count one, two, three, four.
Questions, as this;— What do you know?
