Wee Willie Winkie



Hey! Willie Winkie,

Are you coming then?

The cat’s singing gay tunes

To the sleeping hen.

The dog is lying on the floor,

And does not even peep;

But here’s a wakeful laddie,

That will not fall asleep.

Anything but sleep, you rogue,

Glowing like the moon;

Rattling in a stone jug,

With an iron spoon.

Rumbling, tumbling all about

Crowing like a cock;

Screaming like I don’t know what

Waking sleeping folks.

Hey! Willie Winkie!

Can’t you keep him still,

Wriggling off a body’s knee

Like a very eel.

That has with sleep a battle,

Before he’s done with play,

A wee, wee, dumpy, toddling lad

That runs the livelong day.

Wee Willie Winkie fell asleep - but you can read more rhymes



What’s more fun than reading nursery rhymes?

Well, acting the rhymes, of course.

In our newest e-book, Nursery Rhymes Playscripts, we’ve transformed some of the best known nursery rhymes from verse to action!

These well-known nursery rhymes are now action plays. Now you not only read about Humpty Dumpty and his adventure, but you might pretend to be Humpty Dumpty. Uh-Oh. Be very careful.

Can you jump over the moon? Choose to be the Cow, in the Cat and the Fiddle and it might be possible.

Maybe you’d like to be Miss Muffet. Do you have a tuffet?

Our Nursery Rhymes Playscripts are just the ticket! Get your copy and have some fun acting out our very favorite nursery rhymes with your friends and family.

It's a great day for a play!
