Lesson 42.
The Bees and Wasps.
On the fine days, in spring,
AVill the hive-bees take wing.
And fly for a mile, if not more;
In search of rich food.
To bring home for their brood.
And lay up in cells a good store.
But the fruits of their toil
Are the wasps known to spoil,
And rob them by day and by night;
What they got with great pain,
Will the wasps try to gain.
And to get it, and keep it, will tight.
Some men, like the wasp.
Will make a rude grasp
At tiie wealth, which was got by much toil;
Tho' it is not their right.
They will try day and night.
To get it by force, or by guile.
Lesson 60.
Th-e Rat and the Mouse.
A rat and a mouse
Both dwelt in one house,
And they stole both the bread and tiie clieese;
They were fond of a feast,
And would take of the best.
And long did they live thus, at ease.
