No. 117
Sing, Said the Mother
2   Over in the meadows in the sand in the sun Lived an old mother toady and her little toady one. Hop, said the mother; we hop, said the one.
So they hopped and were glad in the sand in the sun.
3   Over in the meadows in a sly little den
Lived an old mother spider and her little spiders ten.
Spin, said the mother; we spin, said the ten.
So they spun and caught flies in their sly little den.
