The Peter Patter Book Of Nursery Rhymes-01 by Leroy F. Jackson

Primary Poems | 6-8 yrs | Reading Pod

PETER PATTER told them to me,
All the little rimes,
Whispered them among the bushes
Half a hundred times.

Peter lives upon a mountain
Pretty near the sun,
Knows the bears and birds and rabbits
Nearly every one;
Has a home among the alders,
Bed of cedar bark,
Walks alone beneath the pine trees
Even when it’s dark.

Squirrels tell him everything
That happens in the trees,
Cricket in the gander-grass
Sings of all he sees;
Rimes from bats and butterflies,
Crabs and waterfowl;
But the best of all he gets
From his Uncle Owl.

Sometimes when its day-time,
But mostly in the night,
They sit beneath an oak tree
And hug each other tight,
And tell their rimes and riddles
Where the catty creatures prowl—
Funny little Peter Patter
And his Uncle Owl.


Jingle, jingle, Jack,
A copper down a crack.
Twenty men and all their wives,
With sticks and picks and pocket knives,
Digging for their very lives
To get the copper back.


I’m much too big for a fairy,
And much too small for a man,
But this is true:
Whatever I do,
I do it the best I can.
