Flo's Letter

LITTLE FLO'S LETTER
( Anon )

A sweet little baby brother has come to live with Flo,
She wanted him brought to the table that it might eat and grow.
"It must wait awhile," said grandmamma, In answer to her plea,
"For a little thing that hasn't teeth can't eat like you and me."


"Why hasn't it teeth dear gran'ma ?" asked Flo in great surprise
"Oh my ! but isn't it funny ? No teeth ! but nose and eyes
I guess the baby's toofies must have been forgot 
Can't we buy him some like grandpa's ? I'd like to know why not."


That afternoon, to a corner, with paper pen and ink
Went Flo saying, "Don't you talk; if you do you'll 'sturb my think.
I'm writing a letter, gran'ma to send to heaven tonight
And 'cause it's very important I want to get it right."


At last the letter was finished - a wonderful letter to see
Directed up to heaven, and then Flo read it to me :
"Dear God, the baby you brought was awfully nice and sweet,
But because you forgot his toofies the poor little thing can't eat.


"So that's why I'm writing this letter, on purpose to let you know,
Please come and finish the baby - that's all, from little Flo.

No Toofies!

This poem was part of "The Book of Really Good Recitations" which was printed around 1919,   with many of the pieces being selected by the editor Beryl Heitland, way back in the nineteenth century . Part of the Kingsway Series, the Recitations truly bring to the reader an amazing amount of very funny monologues, etc.,

 OLD MOTHER GOOSE AND HER GANDER
 

Old Mother Goose when she wanted to wander,
     Would ride through the air on a very fine gander.
          Mother Goose had a house, 'twas built in a wood,
               Where an owl at the door for sentinal stood.



 This is her son Jack, a plain looking lad,
     He is not very good, nor yet very bad.
          She sent him to market, A live goose he bought;
               "Here Mother," says he, "It will not go for nought."

Jack's goose and her gander grew very fond;
     They'd both eat together, Or swim in the pond.
          Jack found one morning as I have been told,
               His goose had laid him an egg of pure gold.





Jack sold his gold egg to a rogue of a Jew,
     Who cheated him out of the half of his due.
          The Jack went a courting a lady so gay,
               As fair as the lily, as sweet as the may.

Then old Mother Goose that instant came in,
     And turned her son Jack into famed Harlequin.
        The Jew and the Squire came behind his back,
               And began to belabour the sides of poor Jack.




She then with her wand touched the lady so fine
     And turned her at once into sweet Columbine.
          The gold egg into the sea was thrown in,
               When Jack jumped in and got it back again.



The Jew got the goose, which he vowed he would kill,
     Resolving at once his pockets to fill.
         Jack's mother came in, and caught the goose soon,
               And, mounting its back, flew back to the moon.

Leaping Fish
MY GOLDFISH.

All day long he swims around
His little home of glass;
He never smiles, he never frowns,
Leaping Fish
I watch him pass and pass.

Leaping FishRound the globe and round again;
Makes me dizzy watching;

Open mouthed, then shut again;
Wander what he's catching?

Shining like a piece of gold,
Leaping Fish
Glistening like a star;
Never winking, never blinking, --
Round and round the jar.

Round the globe and round again;
Tails and fins a - quivering,
Leaping FishLiving in the water cold:
Wonder if he's shivering?
Picture from allposters
He's a faithful little friend,
I always know I'll find him
Swimming gravely round and round
With his tail behind him.

Round the globe and round again,
Round eyes never blinking;
Looking very, very wise:
Leaping Fish
Wonder what he's thinking?

This little poem was written by John R Crossland....

The Queen of Hearts

The Queen of Hearts,
She made some tarts,
All on a summer's day;
                       

The Knave of hearts,
He stole those tarts,
And took them clean away.

The King of Hearts
Called for the tarts,
And beat the knave full sore;


The Knave of hearts
Brought back the tarts,

And vowed he'd steal no more.



London Bridge has fallen down

 London Bridge has fallen down,

Fallen down, fallen down,
London Bridge has fallen down,
My fair Lady.

Build it up with wood and clay,
Wood and clay, wood and clay,
Build it up with wood and clay,
My fair Lady.




Wood and clay will wash away,
Wash away, wash away,
Wood and clay will wash away,
My fair Lady.
 

Build it up with iron and steel,
Iron and steel, iron and steel,
Build it up with iron and steel,
My fair Lady.
 

Iron and steel will bend and bow,
Bend and bow, bend and bow,
Iron and steel will bend and bow,
My fair Lady.
 
Build it up with silver and gold,
Silver and gold, silver and gold,
Build it up with silver and gold,
My fair Lady.

Silver and gold will be stolen away,
Stolen away, stolen away,
Silver and gold will be stolen away,
My fair Lady.

Mary had a little lamb


Mary had a little lamb,
Its fleece was white as snow.
And everywhere that Mary went,

The lamb was sure to go.

It followed her to school one day,
That was agains the rules;
It made the children laugh and play,
To see a lamb at school

 .

And so the teacher turned it out,
But still it lingered near;
And waited patiently about
Till Mary did appear.

Why does the lamb love Mary so?
The eager children cry;
Why, Mary loves the lamb you know,
The teacher did reply.



Simple Simon met a pieman,
Going to the fair.
Said Simple Simon to the pieman,
"Let me taste your ware."

Said the pieman unto Simon,
"Show me first your penny."
Said Simple Simon to the pieman,
"Indeed I have not any."

               Simple Simon went a-fishing,
For to catch a whale;
But all the water he had got
Was in his mother's pail.

He went to catch a dickie bird
And thought he could not fail,
Because he'd gota little salt,
 To put upon its tail.

The Misfortune of Simple Simon

He went to shoot a wild duck,
But wild duck flew away;
Says Simon, I can't hit him.
Becuase he will not stay.

He went to ride a spotted cow,
That had a little calf;
She threw him down upon the ground,
Which made the people laugh.

 

The Misfortune of Simple Simon

Once Simon made a great snowball,
And bought it in to roast;
He laid it down before the fire,
And soon the ball was lost.

The Misfortune of Simple Simon

Simple Simon went a-hunting,
For to catch a hare;
He rode a goat about the streets,
But couldn't find one there.

 

Simple Simon went to look,
If plums grew on a thistle;
He pricked his fingers very much,
Which made poor Simon whistle.

He went for water in a sieve,
But soon it all fell through;
And now poor Simple Simon


Bids you all adieu.

 SUPPOSE

Suppose the man high up in the Moon
Came really tumbling down;
And suppose that he met Jack and Jill

Before Jack broke his crown:

Suppose that they found all the sheep
That Little Bo-Peep had lost;
And they picked up the man that the Angry Cow
With the Crumpled Horn had tossed:




Supposed they saved the Blackbirds all
From being baked in a pie;
And from the Spider's Parlour
They took the Liitle Fly:

Supposed that Dr. Foster came
Before his feet were wet;
And they took poor Humpty Dumpty down
From the wall where he was set:



And supposed they, then, met Little Boy Blue,

And then they all met ME!


Why, what a jolly party

I'd have that night to tea!






Down by the station early in the morning,

See the little puffer bellies all in a row.

See the engine driver pull the little throttle:

Puff, puff, Toot! Toot! Off we go!


Georgie Porgie, pudding and pie,

Kissed the girls and made them cry;

When the boys came out to play,

Georgie Porgie ran away.


Hickory, dickory, dock,

The mouse ran up the clock.

The clock struck one,

The mouse ran down,

   Hickory, dickory, dock.

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,

Humpty Dumpty had a great fall;

All the King’s horses and all the King’s men,

Couldn’t put Humpty together again.

 

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.

He went to bed and bound his head,

With vinegar and brown paper.

  LITTLE VERSES FOR VERY LITTLE PEOPLE

Eight fingers, ten toes, two eyes and one nose.little girl
Baby said, " When she smelt the rose,
Oh what a pity I've only one nose."
Ten teeth in even rows,
three dimples and one nose.
Baby said when she smelt the snuff,
"Deary me! One nose is quite enough"

written by Laura E. Richards
INTO THE WORLD AND OUT
Little One.
Into the world he looked with sweet surprise;
Little One.The children laughed so when they saw his eyes.

Into the world a rosy hand in doubt
He reached ~ a pale hand took one rose-bud out
.

"And that was all ~ quite all!" No, surely! But.
The children cried so wen his eyes were shut.

written by Sarah M B Piatt.

Sleep, Baby, Sleep

Sleep, baby, sleep
Your father tends the sheep
Your mother shakes the dreamland tree
And from it fall sweet dreams for thee
Sleep, baby, sleep
 Sleep, baby, sleep
Sleep, baby, sleep

Our cottage vale is deep
The little lamb is on the green
 With snowy fleece so soft and clean
Sleep, baby, sleep
Sleep, baby, sleep
Sleep, baby, sleep,

Down where the woodbines creep
Be always like the lamb so mild
A kind, and sweet, and gentle child
Sleep, baby, sleep
Sleep, baby, sleep



Hush, little baby, don't say a word.



Hush, little baby, don't say a word.
Mama's gonna buy you a mockingbird

And if that mockingbird won't sing,
Mama's gonna buy you a diamond ring

And if that diamond ring turns brass,
Mama's gonna buy you a looking glass

And if that looking glass gets broke,
Mama's gonna buy you a billy goat


And if that billy goat won't pull,

Mama's gonna buy you a cart and bull

And if that cart and bull turn over,
Mama's going to buy you a dog named Rover.

And if that dog named Rover won't bark,
Mama's going to buy you a horse and cart.

And if that horse and cart falls down,
You'll still be the sweetest little baby in town.



Oh Dear What Can the Matter Be

Oh dear what can the matter be?
Dear, dear, what can the matter be?
Oh dear, what can the matter be?

Johnny's so long at the fair.

He promised to buy me a basket of posies,
A garland of lilies, a garland of roses,
A little straw hat to set off the blue ribbons
That tie up my bonny brown hair.


Oh dear, what can the matter be?
Dear, dear, what can the matter be?
Oh dear, what can the matter be?
Johnny's so long at the fair.

The Winds They Did Blow.

The winds they did blow;
The leaves they did wag;
Along came a beggar boy,
And put me in a bag.

He took me up to London;
A lady me did buy,
She put me in a silver cage,
And hung me up on high,

With apples by the fire,
And nuts for to crack,
                Besides a little feather bed
                To rest my little back.





There was a monkey, climbed a tree,
When he fell down, then down fell he.

There was a crow sat on a stone,
When he was gone, then there was none.

There was an old wife did eat an apple,
When she'd eaten two, she'd eaten a couple.


There was a horse going to the mill,
When he went on, he stood not still.

There was a butcher cut his thumb,
When it did bleed, the blood did come.

There was a lackey ran a race,
When he ran fast, he ran apace.

There was a cobbler clouting shoes.
When they were mended, they were done.

There was a chandler making candles,
When he them strip, he did them handle.

There was a navy went into Spain,
When it returned, it came again.


Clouting - means - Patching
Strip - Smoothing out
A Lackey was a footman who also ran in front of a carriage.
