Elphinstone Kist   Rhymes bi Bairns

    by: Beattie, Julia

I woke up in the morning, aa rarin tae go
I lookit oot the windae, an aa I saw wis snow
I skelpit doon the stairs tae tell ma mam an dad
This wis gaun tae be the best winter
I’d ever, ever had.

I pit on ma warm claes an pickit up ma sledge
Then I slid doon the gairden richt intae the hedge
I made a great big sna man wi twa eyes an a nose
An it WIS the best winter I’ve ever had, I suppose!
