This charming collection of 49 poems by John Bunyan was first advertised in 1688 as "Country Rhymes for Children, upon seventy-four things," which was later changed to "Divine Emblems, or Temporal Things Spiritualized." In it, Bunyan derives simple spiritual lessons from everyday situations or objects such as the bee, a fish in the water, the frog, the spinning of a top, a box of candles falling to the ground, or the cackling of a hen.
