Beauties of Tennyson
Honor the Light Brigade,
Noble six hundred!

FROM "THE MAY QUEEN."
You must wake and call me early, call me early, mother dear; To-morrow 'ill be the happiest time of all the glad New-year; Of all the glad New-year, mother, the maddest merriest day; For I'm to be Queen o' the May, mother, I'm to be Queen o' the May.
There's many a black black eye, they say, but none so bright as mine; There's Margaret and Mary, there's Kate and Caroline:
But none so fair as little Alice in all the land they say, So I'm to be Queen o' the May, mother, I'm to be Queen o' the May.

SONG FROM "THE PRINCESS."
As thro' the land at eve we went,
And pluck'd the ripen'd ears,
We fell out, my wife and I,
O we fell out I know not why,
And kiss'd again with tears,
And blessings on the falling out
That all the more endears,
