261-Kings and Queens of England

"First William, the Norman, then William, his son;
Henry, Stephen, and Henry, then Richard and John.
Next Henry the Third, Edwards one, two, and three;
And again, after Richard, three Henrys we see.
Two Edwards, third Richard, if rightly I guess;
Two Henrys, sixth Edward, Queen Mary, Queen Bess.
Then Jamie, the Scotchman, then Charles whom they slew,
Yet received after Cromwell another Charles too.

Next James called the Second ascended the throne;
Then good William and Mary together came on ;
Till Anne, Georges four, and fourth William passed,
God sent Queen Victoria; may she long be the last."

Copy:

Make for yourselves nests of pleasant thoughts! None of us yet know, for none of us have been taught in early youth, what fairy palaces we may build of beautiful thoughts, proof against all adversity; bright fancies, satisfied memories, noble histories, faithful sayings, treasure-houses of precious and restful thoughts, which care cannot disturb, nor pain make gloomy, nor poverty take away from us; houses built without hands for souls to live in.-Ruskin.
