Leaves Are Green

_4 to 60 players._

_Indoors; out of doors._

This is a game for small children. The players join hands and form a
ring. They dance around in a circle in time to the music, singing to
the air of "Mulberry bush"

The leaves are green, the nuts are brown;
They hang so high they will not come down;
Leave them alone till frosty weather;
Then they will all come down together.

As the last words are sung, the children all stoop suddenly to the
ground, to represent the falling nuts. This is more interesting if the
time be rapid and if the players jump before stooping, which may lead
to their tumbling over as the nuts do when they fall from the trees.
