Comments about Kate Greenaway
The Little Jumping Girls
From this town into
The next, to-day.
Jump over the moon;
Jump all the morning,
And all the noon.
Jump all night;
Won't our mothers
Be in a fright?
And leave behind
That we may find.
Over the sea;
What wonderful wonders
We shall see.
Jump far away;
And all come home
Some other day.
