Richard Pasco read this on a 1977 BBC Documentary, The Queen's Realm: marvellous! I haven't seen it in years, but I think the footage it accompanied involved views of the Cotswolds and a small village school.

This is one of the poems I remember from school. When girls come forth sprig muslin dresst and they sit outside of the travellers rest. I has a lovely rhrym an metre. And when I see drops hanging on a branch I remember 'Drops on gate bars hang in a row' I really love this one. Daphne
