In A Cottage In A Wood
In a cottage in a wood,
A little old man at the window stood.
Saw a rabbit running by,
Knocking at the door.
"Help me, help me please," he said,
"Before that gunman shoots me dead!"
"Come little rabbit, come with me.
How happy we will be."
Some more nursery rhymes to enjoy
I love my books
They are the homes
of queens and fairies,
Knights and gnomes.
Each time I read I make a call
On some quaint person large or small,
Who welcomes me with hearty hand
And leads me through his wonderland.
Each book is like A city street
Along whose winding way I meet
New friends and old who laugh and sing
And take me off adventuring!
