"Seeing Fun." 


"Good for you, Rose! I know what you mean. We are going to have 

him up to show us how to fly the big kite, for we can't get the hang 

of it. Isn't he great fun, though?" 


"No, little Fun." 


"Come, stop joking, and show us what you've got." 


"You'd better hoist that fan for a sail." 


"Lend Dandy your umbrella; he hates to burn his pretty nose." 


"I say, uncle, are you going to have a Feast of Lanterns?" 


"No, I'm going to have a feast of bread and butter, for it's tea-time. 

If that black cloud doesn't lie, we shall have a gust before long, so 

you had better get home as soon as you can, or your mother will be 

anxious, Archie." 


"Ay, ay, skipper. Good-night, Rose; come out often, and we'll 

teach you all there is to know about rowing," was Charlie's modest 



Then the boats parted company, and across the water from the 

"Petrel's" crew came a verse from one of the Nonsense songs in 

which the boys delighted. 


"Oh, Timballoo! how happy we are, 

We live in a sieve and a crockery jar! 

And all night long, in the starlight pale, 

We sail away, with a pea-green sail, 

And whistle and warble a moony song 

To the echoing sound of a coppery gong. 

Far and few, far and few 

Are the lands where the Jumblies live; 

Their heads are green, and their hands are blue, 

And they went to sea in a sieve."
