The North wind doth blow and we shall have snow,
And what will poor robin do then, poor thing?
He'll sit in a barn and keep himself warm
and hide his head under his wing, poor thing.
I love that song/Rhyme. The purpose of the words to 'The North Wind doth blow' is to ensure that a child associates security with home whilst empathising with the plight of the robin. We have been acting it out recently. Here is a more recent second verse. Does anyone know of extra verses?
The North Wind doth blow,
And we shall have snow,
And what will the dormouse do then?
Roled up like a ball,
In his nest snug and small,
He'll sleep till warm weather comes in.
