“GO IN AND OUT THE WINDOW”

“GO IN AND OUT THE WINDOW” *

Little sparrows playing hence,

In and out the chain-link fence…

Playing late-season hard-to-get

Too late now to brood, I bet!

Children’s game–did it arise

From observing sparrow guise…

In and out a latticed way,

Daisy-chains of children play?

–Jonathan Caswell

* A traditional children’s song and game…in America…from Colonial times.
