Put each his shoon.

We learned this poem in school in Ramsgate, Kent, back in 1952. Today is the first time I've seen the words since, and could remember most of them. Isn't the human brain wonderful! Almost 70 years ago, and now a world away from those bucolic English scenes, in New Zealand.

We read this in school. Second form(now year 8) . We had to do a do a drawing for homework depicting the poem. Mine was greatly praised by our teacher! That was in 1963. I still have my drawing!
