Away to the River

Away to the river, away to the wood,

While the grasses are green and the berries are good!

Where the locusts are scraping their fiddles and bows,

And the bees keep a coming wherever one goes.

Oh, it’s off to the river and off to the hills,

To the land of the bloodroot and wild daffodils,

With a buttercup blossom to color my chin,

And a basket of reed to put blueberries in.



Tree on a Hill

On yonder hill there stands a tree;

Tree on the hill, and the hill stood still.

And on the tree there was a branch;

Branch on the tree, tree on the hill, and the hill stood still.

And on the branch there was a nest;

Nest on the branch, branch on the tree, tree on the hill,

and the hill stood still.

And in the nest there was an egg;

Egg in the nest, nest on the branch, branch on the tree,

tree on the hill, and the hill stood still.

And in the egg there was a bird;

Bird in the egg, egg in the nest, nest on the branch,

branch on the tree, tree on the hill, and the hill stood still.

And on the bird there was a feather;

Feather on the bird, bird in the egg, egg in the nest,

nest on the branch, branch on the tree, tree on the hill,

and the hill stood still.


I Had a Little Bird

I had a little bird,

I took it from the nest;

I prest it and blest it,

And nurst it in my breast.

I set it on the ground,

Danced round and round,

And sang about it so cheerly,

With "Hey, my little bird,

And ho! my little bird,

And oh! but I love thee dearly!"

I make a little feast

Of food soft and sweet,

I hold it in my breast,

And coax it to eat;

I pit, and I pat,

I call this and that,

And I sing about so cheerly,

With "Hey, my little bird,

And ho! my little bird,

And oh! but I love thee dearly!"
