The Spider And The Fly
Will you walk into my parlour?' said the Spider to the Fly,
'Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;

In wood, and field, and glen;

Of town-imprison'd men.

A Sparrow's nest upon the ground;

Blown out of yonder old elm tree.
The Humming-Bird
The humming-bird! the humming-bird!
So fairy-like and bright:
It lives among the sunny flowers,
A creature of delight!
