LESSON 9 THE LITTLE MILK-MAID
1. Look at me, boys and girls. I am a little milkmaid. I am going home with my milk-pail and my stool.
2. I have been milking the cow. You can see her on the grass in the field.
3. The cow knows me. She never moves when I am milking her.
4. Now my pail is quite full of nice sweet milk.
5. Little baby is very fond of milk. When he can speak, I will teach him to say—
Thank you, pretty cow, that made
Nice rich milk to soak my bread,
Every morn and every night,
Fresh and warm, and sweet and white.
