Text Appearing Before Image:
ROCKING-HORSE AND HOBBY-HORSE. .ROCK. Ha! how manfully I can spring, Up and down with a ceaseless swing!HOB. How I bound with my master—what fun !—-Through the garden with ceaseless run. CHILD. Good horses, make not that boastful noise,,For, after all, youre but wooden toys. On one through the garden rode he about,Till that his legs were quite wearied out:Then on the back of the other sat he,And swung himself up, twas a sight to see ;But all was done when he went away: There, in the corner, quite still stood they. 31

Text Appearing After Image:
RABBITS. How happy you rabbits seem to be,Sitting together so merrily ;And looking around you, in cheerful mood.BABBITS. Were happy because our masters so good;Each day he visits us thrice, or more,And fresh leaves brings us, a bounteous store. They heard a light footstep come to the gate,And each little ear was prickd up straight;A head was seen, and a friendly hand.That were both well known to the little band;A bounteous shower of leaves did fall,And soon they were merrily nibbling, all. 32 &
