"What Mother Saw"


       
 
1.
What do you think mother saw on the hill?
White woolly lambs that were all lying still.
White woolly lambs by the white woolly sheep,
All had stopped play and were going to sleep.
 
       
 
2.
What do you think mother saw in the shed?
Little red calves that were going to bed.
Quiet they kept, not a kick nor a leap.
Frisking no more, they were going to sleep.
 
       
  3.

What do you think mother saw in the nest?
Soft fluffy chicks cuddling up for their rest.
Soft fluffy chicks, not a sound, not a peep,
Soft, yellow balls, they were going to sleep.
