Where is " The gnome with the scolding wife" ? I found this in one of my mother's school excercise books from 1931! It's a lesson for many of today's menfolk!

When I was a new kindergarten teacher, on rainy days, my teacher mate would recite would Wouldn't It Be Lovely. She has passed away now, but I always think of her and the poem on rainy days.
