Back Home! 2839 miles later.......

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?
Poor thing!

Roled up like a ball,
In his nest snug and small,
He'll sleep till warm weather comes in.
Poor thing!
