And Little Blue Betty hopped away.

She hopped upstairs to make her bed,

And she tumbled down and broke her head.

HE happy winter evening 's come,

And the lamp burns bright in the cheerful home,
And kind mamma, by the warm fireside,
Reads the book of stories, the children's pride.

For all the day's work is over and past,
And the story-book time has come at last;
So let us enjoy it with heartfelt delight,
Till bed-time comes, and we say good night.
