A Kidnapped Santa Claus

By: L. Frank Baum

Excerpt: Santa Claus lives in the Laughing Valley, where stands the big, rambling castle in which his toys are manufactured. His workmen, selected from the ryls, knooks, pixies and fairies, live with him, and every one is as busy as can be from one year's end to another. It is called the Laughing Valley because everything there is happy and gay. The brook chuckles to itself as it leaps rollicking between its green banks; the wind whistles merrily in the trees; the sunbea...

A Little Princess

By: Frances Hodgson Burnett

Chapter 1: Sara Once on a dark winter's day, when the yellow fog hung so thick and heavy in the streets of London that the lamps were lighted and the shop windows blazed with gas as they do at night, an odd-looking little girl sat in a cab with her father and was driven rather slowly through the big thoroughfares. She sat with her feet tucked under her, and leaned against her father, who held her in his arm, as she stared out of the window at the passing people with a qu...

By: George Orwell

Chapter One : It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen.

Aesop's Fables

By: V.S. Vernon Jones

Excerpt: AESOP embodies an epigram not uncommon in human history; his fame is all the more deserved because he never deserved it. The firm foundations of common sense, the shrewd shots at uncommon sense, that characterize all the Fables, belong not him but to humanity. In the earliest human history whatever is authentic is universal: and whatever is universal is anonymous. In such cases there is always some central man who had first the trouble of collecting them, and af...

War Song

By: John Davidson

Poetry

Excerpt: IN anguish we uplift // A new unhallowed song: // The race is to the swift; // The battle to the strong. // Of old it was ordained // That we, in packs like curs, // Some thirty million trained // And licensed murderers, // In crime should live and act, // If cunning folk say sooth // Who flay the naked fact // And carve the heart of truth. // The rulers cry aloud, // We cannot cancel war, // The end and bloody shroud // Of wrongs the worst abhor, // And order's...

Song of a Train

By: John Davidson

Poetry

Excerpt: A MONSTER taught // To come to hand // Amain, // As swift as thought // Across the land // The train. // The song it sings // Has an iron sound; // Its iron wings // Like wheels go round. // Crash under bridges, // Flash over ridges, // And vault the downs; // The road is straight - // Nor stile, nor gate; // For milestones - towns! // Voluminous, vanishing, white, // The steam plume trails; // Parallel streaks of light, // THe polished rails. // Oh, who can fol...

A Runnable Stag

By: John Davidson

Poetry

Excerpt: WHEN the pods went pop on the broom, green broom, // And apples began to be golden-skinn'd, // We harbour'd a stag in the Priory coomb, // And we feather'd his trail up-wind, up-wind, // We feather'd his trail up-wind- // A stag of warrant, a stag, a stag, // A runnable stag, a kingly crop, // Brow, bay and tray and three on top, // A stag, a runnable stag. // Then the huntsman's horn rang yap, yap yap, // And 'Forwards' we heard the harbourer shout; // But 'twa...

Aubade

By: William Davenant

Poetry

Excerpt: The lark now leaves his wat'ry nest, // And climbing shakes his dewy wings. // He takes this window for the East, // And to implore your light he sings- // Awake, awake! the morn will never rise // Till she can dress her beauty at your eyes. // The merchant bows unto the seaman's star, // The ploughman from the sun his season takes; // But still the lover wonders what they are // Who look for day before his mistress wakes. // Awake, awake! break thro' your veils...
