*** THE ROUGHROCK AND THE BUBBLE***
Oh! a bare RoughRock stood up in the sea the waves at its feet dancing merrily
A little bubble Once came sailing by and thus to the RoghRock did it gayly cry
Ho! clumsy RoughRock, quick, make way for me: I'm the fairest thing that floats on the sea
See my rainbow-robe, see my crown of light, my glittering form, so airy and bright
O'er the waters blue, I'm floating away, to dance by the shore with the foam and spray
Now, make way, make way; for the waves are strong and their rippling feet bear me fast along
But the RoghRock stood straight up in the sea: It looked gravely down and said pleasantly
Little friend, you must go some other way; for I have not stirred this many a long day
Great billows have dashed, and angry winds blown; but my sturdy form is not overthrown
Nothing can stir me In the air or sea; then, how can I move, little friend, for thee?
Then the waves all laughed in their voices sweet; and the sea-birds looked, from their rocky seat
At the bubble gay, who angrily cried, while its round cheek glowed with a foolish pride
You shall move for me; and you shall not mock at the words I say, you ugly, RoughRock
Be silent, wild birds! while stare you so? Stop laughing, rude waves, and help me to go!
For I am the queen of the ocean here, and this cruel RoughRock cannot make me fear
Dashing fiercely up, with a scornful word, foolish Bubble broke; but RoughRock never stirred
Then said the sea-birds, sitting in their nests to the little ones leaning on their brests
Be not like bubble, headstrong, rude and vain seeking by violence your object to gain
But be like the RoughRock steadfast, true and strong. Yet cheerful and kind and firm agai
