Playing at Horses

The copies and the lessons
Are finished for to-day,
And out the happy children
At “horses” come to play.

Conny, and Frank, and Archie,
With doggie “Trim,” are there;
Conny and Frank are harnessed,
And Archie drives the pair.

Away, away they scamper,
Across the breezy park;
And doggie runs beside them
With merry, happy bark.

For breath they pause a minute,
Then off they start again,
For they pretend they’re going
To meet papa’s down train.
