Q UEEN Ann, Queen Ann, she sits in the sun, As fair as the lily, as white as the swan: I send you three letters, so pray you read one. I cannot read one unless I read all; So pray, Master Teddy, deliver the ball.
RIDDLE me, riddle me, ree, A hawk sat upon a tree; And he says to himself,
says he, La! what a fine bird 1 be!
R OBIN the Bobbing the big-bellied Ben, He ate more meat than
fourscore men; He ate a cow, he ate a
calf, He ate a butcher and a
half; He ate a church, he ate a steeple. He ate the priest and all the people !
ROBERT Barns, fellow fine,
Can you shoe this horse of mine,
So that I may cut a shine ?
Yes good sir, and that I can,
As well as any other man;
There a nail, and here a prod,
And now, good sir, your horse is shod.
