Horsey Horsey

Horsey horsey don't you stop
Just let your feet go clippetty clop
The tail goes swish and the wheels go round
Giddy up, we're homeward bound.

Ah, this brings back some great memories. My mom taught us this poem as a song with two parts that you sing together.

You always find the perfect image to suit your poems, Lorie Ann. And this poem suits the day here. We don't have snow, but it's wintery.

Horsey Horsey reminds me of The Wheels on The Bus (go round and round...) Maybe this was the 1800s version. :o)

This brought back such fun memories of when my teen daughters were little. I'd hold them on my lap (well, one at a time) and do the, "This is the way the ladies ride, trit-trot, trit-trot," etc., etc. They loved the different kinds of runs and of course "falling into the ditch." Giggles galore. Thanks for the reminder!
