Presenting an illustration from Little Folks’ Land (1895) as today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page.

“The wonders of the Indian woods
And ocean islands fair,
The Ice-King’s fairy palaces —
All these are pictured there.
I need not on a ship sail out
Through such rare scenes to roam,
I do but turn those pages o’er
And see the world at home.”

Presenting an illustration by Joan and Dorothea Drew from Hymns for Little Children (1908) as today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page.

“I knew a little sickly child ;
The long long summer’s day,
When all the world was green and bright,
Alone in bed he lay.
There used to come a little dove
Before his window small,
And sing to him with her sweet voice
Out of the fir-tree tall.”

“By the buttercup’s side the child then spied his favourite flower, a huge harebell. It was an unusual place
for it, and he plucked it low down and quite easily. Then, as he looked up at it, it grew bigger and he saw it was not a harebell at all, but his own air-ball, as sound and blue as ever, and even more airy. Up and up it went and O lovely, lovely !  —himself with it.”

Presenting an illustration by Sarah Noble-Ives who is also the author of Songs of the Shining Way (1899) as today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page.

“Where the Shining Way is broadest, there’s a nest;
Two fat Robins live in it,
In and out I see them flit,
And the biggest wears a gorgeous crimson vest.

We are friends, and so when I
Come to look, they do not fly,
But they chatter from the branches of the tree;
And I run down there to play,
When the sun shines, every day,
And next year they say they’ll build a nest for me.”

Smoky gloss he’s got!”
