e for a rhyme
Linda Wolfsgruber, austria
A l i t t l e pointed cap Dancing in the ring! Three threes are nine. You know what I mean. Three threes are nine And one more is ten. Stop, cap, stop! It shook and shook itself, Tossed the sack Behind its back. Clap, clap hands — The two of us are friends.
Zipfelmütze geht in unserm Kreis herum. Dreimal drei ist neune, ihr wisst ja wie ich’s meine. Dreimal drei ist neun, und eins dazu ist zehn. Zipfelmütze, bleib stehn, bleib stehn! Sie schüttelt sich, sie rüttelt sich, sie wirft ihr Säcklein hinter sich, sie klatschen in die Hand, wir beide sind verwandt.
