Mill Field


Hum/Higgledy-Piggledy


They live in a house called Higgledy-Piggledy;
Giggle, Wiggle, Niggle Higgle - up;
Squiggle, Jiggle and Wriggle Piggle - down.

If anything's lost, nor yet is found,
It's bound to be done by one of these hounds.

Give them a clue, perhaps a small fee,
They'll hunt it down by round about three.

Digging here, poking there,
Sniffing and snuffling the morning air;
You'll hear a yelp, a growl of joy
And, lo and behold, there's your toy.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
