Bunch Of Ivy

_20 to 60 or more players._

_Parlor; gymnasium; playground._

The players in pairs form a ring. The inner player of each couple
kneels. The outer player of each couple holds the upraised hand of the
kneeling partner and circles around her, asking the following
questions. The partners reply as indicated, mentioning each time one
hour later by the clock, until six o'clock has been reached.

"What time does the king come home?"

"One o'clock in the afternoon."

"What has he in his hand?"

"A bunch of ivy."

This dialogue and the accompanying movement of the players should be
rhythmic and spirited in time. As the kneeling players say "A bunch of
ivy," they begin clapping their hands in the same rapid time;
whereupon the outer players run around the entire ring to the right
until each player has returned to her partner, once for one o'clock,
twice for two o'clock, etc., until six o'clock has been reached. The
players change places each time after this series of circling, the
outer players kneeling, and those who formerly knelt, standing. The
time of both the dialogue and the running should be rapid to keep the
game spirited. The larger the circle that may be described around each
kneeling player by the partner the better.
