Blackfriars by Eleanor Farjeon









Blackfriars

by Eleanor Farjeon


Seven Black Friars sitting back to back
Fished from the bridge for a pike or a jack.
The first caught a tiddler, the second caught a crab,
The third caught a winkle, the fourth caught a dab,
The fifth caught a tadpole, sixth caught an eel,
And the seventh one caught an old cart-wheel.
