Ann, play with the babe. Take him in your lap. Do not hurt him. Catch the cat for him. Dress your doll. What is its name? Here is a sharp axe. Do not cut you. See the lambs play. See that frog hop.
Tell no lies. Use no bad words. Pick some plums. Shake the tree. Crack this nut. Turn the crank. Ring the bell. Bake me a cake. Buy me a top. All the boys are here. Let us play ball. Choose sides. See the ball hop. I am not well. Let us go home. Put up your book.
Ann, will you sing me a song?
Do not blot your new book.
Lay up the book; it is time to dine.
The Lord will love them that fear him.
He minds all we say and do.
We must love all men, if they do not love us.
And we must pray for them that hate us.
Do you ask if
you are to die?
You and I and all men must die.
If I see a boy do ill, I will try not to do so.
We must do as we like to be done to.
Be sure to tell no lies. Tell no tales. Be kind to all men. Do all the good you can. You must not hurt a boy if he hurts you. Do not dirt your hands or your book. Wipe your feet, and do not dirt the floor. I thank you for this book. I will try to read it well. You have read quite well.
