LITTLE JANE.
Four times one are four,
Little Jane was very poor;
Four times two are eight,
And on others had to wait;
Four times three are twelve,
In the garden she would delve ;
Four times four are sixteen,
And was handy in the kitchen;
Four times five are twenty,
And not always had a plenty.
Four times six axe twenty-four,
OF learning she had little store ;
Four times seven are twenty-eight,
But bore quite patiently her fate.
Four times eight are thirty-two,
And glad was she for work to do;
Four times nine are thirty-six,
And made us laugh with merry tricks;
Four times ten are forty,
And was gentle to the haughty.
Four times eleven are forty-four,
At length she prospered more and more;
Four times twelve are forty-eight,
And now's a good man's happy mate.
