  4. 4. 73 Woodman, Spare That Tree! by George Pope Morris 1. Woodman, spare that tree! Touch not a single bough! In youth it sheltered me, And I’ll protect it now. T’was my forefather’s hand That placed it near his cot; There, woodman let it stand, Thy axe shall harm it not! 2. That old familiar tree, Whose glory and renown And spread o’er the land and sea And wouldst thou hew it down? Woodman, forebear thy stroke! Cut not its earth-bound ties; O, spare that aged oak, Now towering to the skies 3. When but an idle boy I sought its grateful shade; In all their gushing joy Here, too, my sisters played My mother kissed me here; My father pressed my hand Forgive this foolish tear, But let that oak stand! 4. My heart-strings round thee cling, Close as thy bark, old friend! Here shall the wild bird sing And still thy branches bend. Old tree! The storm still brave! And, woodman, leave the spot; While I’ve a hand to save, Thy axe shall harm it not.

  13. 13. 21 Betsy looked at the sad face in the painting. She jumped when Jeremy’s voice broke in. “Why…she looks like you, Betsy.” 22 Quickly Betsy turned the little portrait face down. As she did so, she caught sight of a name inscribed on the back. “it says ‘Elizabeth’ here, Aunt Jane,” she cried. 23 “Of course, dear,” her aunt replied. “That was her name. she was probably named after the Queen.” 24 “But that’s my name, too. Betsy’s just a nickname.” Aunt Jane took the portrait back with a worried look at Betsy’s trembling hands. She wrapped it up again carefully and put it away. “My goodness, Betsy,” she said, “I’d never have told you the story if I’d known it would upset you like this. Now, off to bed with you and don’t think of it again.” 25 Nevertheless, as Betsy lay upstairs in the dark, she couldn’t think of anything else. What was the lady’s sad story?

Jeremy asked after lunch. “Or are you afraid you’ll meet your ‘blue lady’ again?” he teased. 28 “I’m not afraid,” Betsy began indignantly, but Jeremy had already run upstairs, laughing, to change his clothes. 29 The sunlight that filtered down through the thick branches of the trees glistened on the wet leaves. Underfoot the birds were unusually silent. All that Jeremy and Betsy could hear was the occasional spatter of drops being shaken down from the branches overhead and the squelch of the horses’ hooves in the deep mud. The mood of the forest seemed to press down upon them, and gradually they, too, stopped talking and became silent. 30 Betsy sat loosely in her saddle, reins slack-it was too wet to think of galloping today. Jeremy had trotted a little way ahead, when a slight sound startled her. It was a horn. Betsy reined Pickles in to hear better. There it was again. Now she could hear dogs barking and other horns joining in. 31 “Jeremy,” she called, “I can hear the horns and the dogs again!” 32 This time I am going to see them, she thought, and before Jeremy could answer, she had wheeled Pickles around and was tearing back the way they had come, completely forgetting about the Did Betsy go riding again?

Find out. 33 As they broke through a thick clump trees, she saw a deep gully right in their path, but at the speed they were going, there was no way to avoid it. She screamed as Pickles reared up in a desperate attempt to stop; then the horse slid over the edge. As they fell, Betsy felt the whole weight of the horse come down on her leg; then she was rolling and rolling down the steep bank.

We searched for you, but by the time it began to get dark, we were getting pretty desperate. We had just come to the path by the pond when I saw a girl on a white horse.
