Jack and Jill



Jack & Jill went up the hill
to fetch a pail of water.
Jack fell down and broke his crown
and Jill came tumbling after.

Up Jack got, and off he ran,
As merry as a happy man.
He played some games, then rested his head,
With a cozy blanket on his bed.

When Jill came in, she laughed with glee,
To see Jack’s bandage, as neat as can be.
Mother smiled at their playful sight,
And hugged them both, and kissed goodnight.

Jack and Jill, next morning bright,
Woke up with the sun’s light.
They went outside to play and run,
In the meadow, full of fun.

Jill and Jack, with laughter’s sound,
Raced again to the mound.
They found a stream, so clear and cool,
And played by the water, as a rule.

In the evening, back they came,
Tired but happy with their game.
Mother called them to their supper,
Ending their day, full of wonder.
