The Little Jumping Girls

by Kate Greenaway



Jump-jump-jump-


Jump away

From this town into

The next, today.


Jump-jump-jump-


Jump over the moon;

Jump all the morning

And all the noon.


Jump-jump-jump-


Jump all night;

Won't our mothers 

Be in a fright?


Jump-jump-jump-


Over the sea;

What wonderful wonders

We shall see.


Jump-jump-jump-


And leave behind

Everything evil

That we may find.


Jump-jump-jump-


Jump far away;

And all come home

Some other day.
