A Tisket A Tasket
A green and yellow basket.
I wrote a letter to my love,
But on the way I dropped it.
I dropped it, I dropped it,
And, on the way I dropped it.
A little boy picked it up,
And put it in his pocket.

Puss In The Corner
IN this game all the children pretend to be mice,
except one who is the puss.
Puss stands in the middle of the room.
Each mouse stands in a corner.
While there puss cannot touch them,
but when they run across the room to
change corners with one another,
she may capture any she can.
No mouse should venture from a corner
until she has made signs to another mouse
with whom she would like to change houses,
or she may find herself half way across the room
with no corner to run to.
The mouse that is caught must take the place of puss.
