One Day When We Went Walking

May 29, 2010

One day when we went walking

I found a dragon’s tooth,

A dreadful dragon’s tooth.

“A locust thorn,” said Ruth.

One day when we went walking,

I found a brownie’s shoe,

A brownie’s button shoe.

“A dry pea pod,” said Sue.

One day when we went walking,

I found a mermaid’s fan,

A merry mermaid’s fan.

“A scallop shell,” said Dan.

One day when we went walking,

I found a fairy’s dress,

A fairy’s flannel dress.

“A mullein leaf,” said Bess.

Next time that I go walking-

Unless I meet an elf,

A funny, friendly elf-

I’m going by myself!
