Ring o' Roses  by L. Leslie Brooke

Little Bo-Peep

Little Bo-Peep has lost her sheep,

And can't tell where to find them;


Leave them alone, and they'll come home,

And bring their tails behind them.


Little Bo-peep fell fast asleep,

And dreamt she heard them bleating;

But when she awoke, she found it a joke,  

For they were still a-fleeting.

Then up she took her little crook,

Determined for to find them;

She found them indeed,

but it made her heart bleed,

For they'd left all their tails behind 'em.
