Some Nursery Rhymes

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall. Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. All the Kings horses, And all the Kings men Couldnt put Humpty together again!


This is the farmer sowing his corn, That kept the cock that crowed in the morn, That waked the priest all shaven and shorn, That married the man all tattered and torn, That kissed the maiden all forlorn, That milked the cow with the crumpled horn, That tossed the dog, That worried the cat, That killed the rat, That ate the malt, That lay in the house that Jack built.


Boys and girls, come out to play. The moon doth shine as bright as day! Leave your supper and leave your sleep, and come with your playfellows into the street. Come with a whistle, Come with a call, Come with a good will, or not at all.

Ride a cock horse to Banbury Cross To see a fine lady upon a white horse. Rings on her fingers, and bells on her toes, She shall have music wherever she goes.

Wee Willie Winkie runs through the town, Upstairs and downstairs, in his nightgown. Rapping at the windows, crying through the lock, "Are the children all in bed? For now its eight oclock"

There was a crooked man who walked a crooked mile. He found a crooked sixpence against a crooked stile. He bought a crooked cat which caught a crooked mouse, And they all lived together in a crooked little house.

...and Cinderellas Fairy Godmother turned six white mice into beautiful horses. For the carriage, she had Cinderella get a pumpkin from the garden and turned it into beautiful crystal coach!

I know, I know. This is a pic of Charlie, R.J. and Ben from about 7 years ago, but it worked out so well with the poem!! (and they are just so cute) Rub a dub dub, Three men in a tub, And who do you think they be? The butcher, the baker, The candlestick maker. Turn them out, knaves all three

Thank you for indulging my whimsey.

These pictures were from Camp Grandmama and Grampy Campy four years ago.  It was the first year for Kevin, Carson and Luci, but you can see they had a ball.
