HOW THE SHEEP FOUND BO-PEEP

by Dora Burnside


Little Bo-peep awoke from her sleep;

Her eyes opened wide and wider;

For she found herself seated on the grass

With an old sheep standing beside her.


"Little Bo-peep," said the good old sheep,

"How glad I am that we've found you!

Here we are—rams and sheep and lambs—

All flocking up around you."


"You blessed sheep," said little Bo-peep,

"I've been worried to death about you."

"We've been searching for you," said the good old sheep:

"We wouldn't go home without you."
