Mamma stood by ,and cried Oh fie!
Why did you eat the dumplings?

Some more nursery rhymes to enjoy

Johnny's Frolic

Ho! for a frolic!
Said Johnny the stout;
There’s coasting and sledding;
I’m going out!

Scarcely had Johnny
Plunged in the snow
When there came a complaint
Up from his toes

We’re cold, said the toes,
I and the rest ;
There are ten of us freezing,
Standing abreast.

Then up spoke an ear;
My! but it’s labour
Playing in winter.
Eh, Opposite neighbour?

Pooh! said his nose,
Angry and red;
Who wants to tingle?
Go home to bed!

Eight little fingers,
Four to a thumb,
All cried together,
Johnny, we’re numb!

But Johnny the stout
Wouldn’t listen a minute;
Never a snow-bank
But Johnny was in it.

Tumbling and jumping,
Shouting with glee,
Wading the snow-drifts
Up to his knee,

Soon he forgot them,
Fingers and toes,
Never once heeded
The ear and the nose.

Ah what a frolic!
All in a glow,
Johnny grew warmer
Out in the snow.

Often his breathing
Came with a joke;
Blaze away, Johnny!
I’ll do the smoke.

And I’ll do the fire,
Said Johnny the bold,
Fun is the fuel
For driving off cold.
