Summer Flowers

Source: Games Without Music For Children

This game is played like the game of 'Spring Flowers' (see instructions
on p. 56).

The girl chosen to represent 'Summer' may repeat the verse given in
Guessing Rhyme No. 75, p. 95, and then the 'Flowers' step forward as
their names are mentioned in the rhymes which follow.

First comes the Pink Wild Rose,
[Rose steps forward.]
The White rose, too, is here
Next Honeysuckle sweet,
And Foxglove standing near.

The scented Mignonette,
Dog-daisy gold and white,
The pretty Cornflower blue,
And Marigold so bright.

A Campion white grows here,
And next a Campion pink,
Here's Clover from the field,
Harebell comes next, I think.

The 'Flowers' then join hands and repeat the following rhyme:--

A ring we make round Summer sweet,
Oh Summer, Summer, thee we greet:
[All bow.]
For bright and happy is our play
All through the livelong Summer day.

The 'Flowers' then dance round 'Summer.'

Next: The Three Bears

Previous: Spring Flowers
