The children form a ring, joining hands, and one child sits in the
middle. Those who form the ring walk round singing to the tune of 'The
Keel Bow.'

Here's Polly Flinders,
She sits on the cinders,
Waits for a fairy to come and bring her news.
Stand upon your feet, dear,
Take a look around here,
Kiss the one you love best, the one you like to choose.

At the word 'stand' the child in the centre rises to her feet, and when
the rhyme is ended she chooses a child to take her place in the centre
and returns to the ring. All the children stand still while the choice
is being made.
