School is over

From Under the Window by Kate Greenaway

School is over,
Oh, what fun!
Lessons finished,
Play begun.

Who’ll run fastest,
You or I?
Who’ll laugh loudest?
Let us try.

Margery Brown, on the top of the hill

From Under the Window by Kate Greenaway

“Margery Brown, on the top of the hill,
Why are you standing, idle still?”
“Oh, I’m looking over to London town;
Shall I see the horsemen if I go down?”

“Margery Brown, on the top of the hill,
Why are you standing, listening still?”
“Oh, I hear the bells of London ring,
And I hear the men and the maidens sing.”

“Margery Brown, on the top of the hill,
Why are you standing, waiting still?”
“Oh, a knight is there, but I can’t go down,
For the bells ring strangely in London town.”
