Poem by Katherine Mansfield
A Joyful Song Of Five
Come, let us all sing very high And all sing very loud And keep on singing in the street Until there’s quite a crowd; And keep on singing in the house And up and down the stairs; Then underneath the furniture Let’s all play Polar bears; And crawl about with doormats on, And growl and howl and squeak, Then in the garden let us fly And play at hid and seek; And ”Here we gather Nuts and May,” ”I wrote a Letter” too, ”Here we go round the Mulberry Bush,” ”The Child who lost its shoe”; And every game we ever played. And then--to stay alive-- Let’s end with lots of Birthday Cake Because to-day you’re five.
