HOW TO CATCH A MAN
Roses are red, Violets are blue,
Dilly dilly, Lavender too!
Secret incantations she chants:
We would whittle whistles with wood
We would, Willy willy, with wood.
We work with whistles, when we walk.
We would work with whistles we would!
She whispers nonsensical things
and untangles a piece of string
under the candle light she views
a ring, a room, a cat and broom
a spare chair, a candle and string.
That’s all she needs to catch a man,
she puts the gold ring on the string
and ties a knot and thinks of him.
She makes a cats cradle and chants
a secret message to her man:
Lavender's blue, Diddle diddle,
When you are King, Diddle diddle,
I shall be Queen!
