Contents: The moon's in a fit --
Children, you are very little --
There I met a pretty miss --
The world of waters is our home --
What bird so sings? --
A story I'll to you unfold --
O'er ditches and mires --
Sweet sprites --
Come wind, come weather --
He is of the tribe of tiger --
Other creatures --
We'll let each other alone --
O'er vales and hills --
A chip hat had she on --
Sigh as you sing --
With sweet-briar and bon-fire --
Rock them, rock them, lullaby.
Responsibility: with illustrations by Brian Wildsmith.

Abstract:

Ballads, poems of mystery, delicate tales of faery, songs of the sea, and an element of surprise make this a book that will give pleasure to any child and any family.  Read more...
