THE LITTLE PINK ROSE
Once there was a little pink Rosebud,
and she lived down in a little dark house
under the ground. One day she was sitting
there, all by herself, and it was very
still. Suddenly, she heard a little TAP, TAP,
TAP, at the door.
"Who is that?" she said.
"It's the Rain, and I want to come in;"
said a soft, sad, little voice.
"No, you can't come in," the little Rosebud said.
By and by she heard another little TAP,
TAP, TAP on the window pane.
