Hippopotamum by Stuart Macfarlane

Hippopotamum
I love my mother.
She loves me too,
I love her more,
Than the hippo at the zoo.
(Copyright Stuart Macfarlane)

There was an Old Man of the Cape by Edward Lear

There was an Old Man of the Cape,
Who possessed a large Barbary Ape;
Till the Ape one dark night,
Set the house on a light,
Which burned that Old Man of the Cape.

Jack and Jill by Anonymous

Jack and Jill went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water;
Jack fell down and broke his crown,
and Jill came tumbling after.


Up Jack got, and home did trot,
As fast as he could caper,
To old Dame Dob, who patched his nob
With vinegar and brown paper.

The Christening by A. A. Milne

What shall I call
My dear little dormouse?
His eyes are small,
But his tail is e-nor-mouse.

I sometimes call him Terrible John,
'Cos his tail goes on -
And on -
And on.
And I sometimes call him Terrible Jack,
'Cos his tail goes on to the end of his back.
And I sometimes call him Terrible James,
'Cos he says he likes me calling him names…
But I think I shall call him Jim,
'Cos I am fond of him.

They hang the man and flog the woman - English Nursery Rhyme by Author Unknown

They hang the man and flog the woman
that steal the goose from off the common,
but let the greater villain loose
that steals the common from the goose.

The law demands that we atone
when we take things we do not own,
but leaves the lords and ladies fine
Who take things that are yours and mine.

English Nursery Rhyme c. 1764
