    A little peach in an orchard grew,—
A little peach of emerald hue;
Warmed by the sun and wet by the dew
      It grew.
          The little Peach.

                We twain
Discussed with buoyant hearts
The various things that appertain
To bibliomaniac arts.
          Dibdin’s Ghost.

    Wynken, Blynken and Nod one night
  Sailed off in a wooden shoe—
Sailed on a river of crystal light
  Into a sea of dew.
          Wynken, Blynken and Nod.

    The fire upon the hearth is low,
  And there is stillness everywhere,
  And, like winged spirits, here and there
The firelight shadows fluttering go.
          In the Firelight.

    The little toy-dog is covered with dust
  But sturdy and stanch he stands;
And the little toy-soldier is red with rust
  And his musket moulds in his hands;
Time was when the little toy-dog was new,
  And the soldier was passing fair;
And that was the time when our Little Boy Blue
  Kissed them and put them there.
          Little Boy Blue.
