Poems of Home: III. Fun for Little Folk
The Three Children
Anonymous
 
THREE children sliding on the ice
  Upon a summer’s day,
As it fell out they all fell in,
  The rest they ran away.
 
Now, had these children been at home,        5
  Or sliding on dry ground,
Ten thousand pounds to one penny
  They had not all been drowned.
 
You parents all that children have,
  And you too that have none,        10
If you would have them safe abroad
  Pray keep them safe at home.

1662.
