  NURSERY RHYMES A LA MODE  

(Our nurseries will soon lie too cultured to admit the old rhymes in
their Philistine and unesthetic garb. They may be redressed somewhat on
this model.)


Oh, but she was dark and shrill,
    (Hey-de-diddle and hey-de-dee!)
    The cat that (on the first April)
    Played the fiddle on the lea.
Oh, and the moon was wan and bright,
    (Hey-de-diddle and hey-de-dee!)
    The Cow she looked nor left nor right,
    But took it straight at a jump, pardie!
The hound did laugh to see this thing,
    (Hey-de-diddle and hey-de-dee!)
As it was parlous wantoning,
    (Ah, good my gentles, laugh not ye,)
And underneath a dreesome moon
    Two lovers fled right piteouslie;
A spooney plate with a plated spoon,
    (Hey-de-diddle and hey-de-dee!)

                     POSTSCRIPT

Then blame me not, altho' my verse
    Sounds like an echo of C. S. C.
Since still they make ballads that worse and worse
    Savor of diddle and hey-de-dee.

                                                                                Unknown.
