WITCH, WATCH, MOTHER! MOTHER WITCH the little feet Climbing o'er li e g*r Un will, B undin- through the busv street, Banging ce'lar, shed, and hall; Never count the moments lost, I ever mind the time it costs, Little feet will go astray. Guide thctp, mother, while you any. Mother! watch the little hand, Picking berries by the way, Making houses iii 'he sand. Tossing up 1 he fragrant hay; Never dare the questi on ask. Why to me this weary task These same lit, le hands may prove Me-sengers of light and love. Mother! watch the little tongue, Prattling, eloquent, and wild, What is said and wh it is sung Py thv happy, joyous child. Catch the word while yet unspoken, ('a,ch the %-ow bef,)re 'tis broken This same tongue may yet proclaim Blessings in a Saviour's name. Mother watch the infant heart Bealing soft and w ,rm for you: Wholesome lessons now impart; Kpep, () keep that young heart true, Extricating every weed, So ving good and precious seed; Harvest rich you then may see Ripening for eternity.
