Brown of hue and bright of feature,
Darting, creeping, slyly peeping,
Watch around your home you're keeping.

And one must stay at home,

To breakfast or to sup,

life.

With time for labour and for rest. 1. I'm used by night and not by day. 2. A game some children love to play. 3. I'm used to silence outcry wild. 4. I gently soothe the wailing child. 5. When the bright glow of sunset fills the sky, How beautiful my Last, beholders cry!

Those to be cheated, these to cheat. 4. If you have seven, keep them tight,

Don't lose them in a sudden fright. 5. Of kinsmanship a pleasant tie. 6. At Tara heard in days gone by. 7. The snows of Russia this large river feed. : 8. No flower, and yet we talk of beds and seed. 9. Not singular, but often odd, 10. This mountain's top is seldom trod. 11. A poet says that when I'm found Loud laughs the land with plenty crowned.
