"Old Woman, Old Woman," illustrated by Blanche Fisher Wright
The Real Mother Goose, 1916.
Another nursery rhyme today in lieu of Thursday's children's picture book:
There was an old woman tossed in a basket,
Seventeen times as high as the moon;
But where she was going no mortal could tell,
For under her arm she carried a broom.
"Old woman, old woman, old woman," said I,
"Whither, oh whither, oh whither so high?"
"To sweep the cobwebs from the sky;
And I'll be with you by-and-by."
Spring Break Progress Report: This is what comes of cleaning ceiling fans, for the next thing you know you are on the roof, and the roof is way too close to the sky. And I will be with you by-and-by!
