IN THE LUXEMBOURG GARDENS.
ROSE and Bertie have a ride ; Mabel, walking at their side, Carries both the dolls, and so By the Luxembourg they go.
Hear that woman, " Who will buy Windmill, ball, or butterfly "— Josephine and Phillipe, see, Eager as they both can be.
Over in that Palace soon— For the clock is marking noon— The " Senate " will together come (Like our " House of Lords " at home).
Charles before her, silent stands, With no money in his hands, No more sous—he spent them all On that big inflated ball.
Be content, my little friend, Money spent you cannot spend ; •With your good St. Bernard play, Buy more toys another day.
