Poetry Friday: Come Out to Play

I only knew pieces of this. How about you? Have fun learning it with your totz on this Poetry Friday!

Come Out to Play

Girls and boys, come out to play,
The moon is shining as bright as day.

Leave your supper, and leave your sleep,
And come with your playfellows into the street.

Come with a whoop, come with a call,
Come with a good will or not at all.

Up the ladder and down the wall,
A halfpenny roll will serve us all.

You find milk, and I'll find flour,
And we'll have pudding in half an hour.

Gorgeous. It made me nostalgic for a time I never saw, but that is universal.
