  BOSTON NURSERY RHYMES  

RHYME FOR A GEOLOGICAL BABY

Trilobite, Grapholite, Nautilus pie;
Seas were calcareous, oceans were dry.
Eocene, miocene, pliocene Tuff,
Lias and Trias and that is enough.


RHYME FOR ASTRONOMICAL BABY

    Bye Baby Bunting,
    Father's gone star-hunting;
    Mother's at the telescope
    Casting baby's horoscope.
    Bye Baby Buntoid,
    Father's found an asteroid;
    Mother takes by calculation
    The angle of its inclination.


RHYME FOR BOTANICAL BABY

Little bo-peepals
Has lost her sepals,
And can't tell-where to find them;
In the involucre
By hook or by crook or
She'll make up her mind not to mind them.


RHYME FOR A CHEMICAL BABY

Oh, sing a song of phosphates,
    Fibrine in a line,
Four-and-twenty follicles
    In the van of time.

When the phosphorescence
    Evoluted brain,
Superstition ended,
    Men began to reign.

                                Rev. Joseph Cook.
