A rhyme


A rhyme to enjoy together.

Wee Willie Winkie

Runs through the town,

Upstairs and down stairs

In his night-gown.

Tapping at the windows,

Crying through the locks,

Are all the children in their beds?

For it’s past eight o’clock?


I remember this nursery rhyme very well both from when I was a child and when my own children were little.

You can also say the rhyme with different “o’clock’s.”

With a group of children, We would take turns rolling a giant foam die and using that number for the “o’clock.”
