MOTHER GOOSE'S MELODIES. 6f
LITTLE Bo-peep has lost
her sheep, And cannot tell where to find
'em; Leave them alone,and they'll
come home, And bring their tails behind
Little Bo-peep fell fast asleep,
And dreamt she heard them bleating; When she awoke, she found it a joke,
For still they all were fleeting.
Then up she took her little crook,
Determin'd for to find them; She found them indeed,but
it made her heart bleed, For they'd left their tails
It happen'd one day, as
Bo-peep did stray Unto a meadow hard by: There she espied their tails
side by side, All hung on a tree to dry.
