IN THE
LUXEMBOURG GARDENS

Rose and Bertie have a ride;
Mabel, walking at their side,
Carries both the dolls, and so
By the Luxembourg they go.

Over in that Palace soon—
For the clock is marking noon—
The "Senate" will together come
(Like our "House of Lords" at home).
    
Hear that woman, "Who will buy
Windmill, ball, or butterfly"—
Josephine and Phillipe, see,
Eager as they both can be.
 
Charles before her, silent stands,
With no money in his hands,
No more sous—he spent them all
On that big inflated ball.

Be content, my little friend,
Money spent you cannot spend;
With your good St. Bernard play,
Buy more toys another day.
