If I had a donkey
And he wouldn’t go,
Would I wallop him?
No, no, no.
I’d find a little hay
And give him some corn,
Then he’d be the best donkey
That ever was born.
The Donkey
I had a Little Pony
– Margaret S. Russell
I had a little pony,
His name was Dapple-grey,
I lent him to a lady,
To ride a mile away.
She whipped him, she lashed him,
She drove him through the mire.
I wouldn’t lend my pony now,
For all the lady’s hire.
New words
donkey, wallop, lady, whipped, lent, lashed, mire, hire

The Milkman’s Cow
The milkman’s cow was in a bad mood. It sat in the middle 
of the road and refused to move.
The milkman begged the cow to get up. “The children are 
waiting for their milk to help them grow strong.  Please get 
up,” he pleaded.  He pulled and tugged and prayed.
But the cow wasn’t going anywhere that day.
Along came a policeman, his buttons and 
buckles gleaming bright. “Humph,” he said, 
twirling his long 
moustache, “I’ll 
show you how 
to do it right.”
