Come And Play In The Garden

Rating: 2.9

Little sister, come away,
And let us in the garden play,
For it is a pleasant day.

On the grass-plat let us sit,
Or, if you please, we'll play a bit,
And run about all over it.

But the fruit we will not pick,
For that would be a naughty trick,

And very likely make us sick.

Note that though this has a strong rhyme scheme it twists neither logic nor syntax—an example for us. -GK

There is a sweetness to this that refreshes a jaded taste. May not, however, much resemble today's siblings out at play mores the pity. I like her end-rhyming ability... smooth as silk and very natural..
