The Little Jumping Girls - Poem by Kate Greenaway

JUMP–jump–jump–
Jump away
From this town into
The next, to-day.

Jump–jump–jump–
Jump over the moon;
Jump all the morning,
And all the noon.

Jump–jump–jump–
Jump all night;
Won't our mothers
Be in a fright?

Jump–jump–jump–
And leave behind
Everything evil
That we may find.

Jump–jump–jump–
Over the sea;
What wonderful wonders
We shall see.

Jump–jump–jump–
Jump far away;
And all come home
Some other day.
