Polperro Rhymes *

Entrance to Polperro Harbour
* Suitable for a bedtime story

Changeling

See Saw, Margery Daw
Left her bed and lay in the straw
Left the straw and lay in the hay
Piskey came and took her away.

Piskey Led

Jack the Lantern, Joan the Wad,
Light me home the weather's bad.

Piskey Thresher

Piskey fine, piskey gay
Piskey soon will fly away

Bats

Airey mouse, airey mouse fly over my head
And you shall have a crust of bread
And when I brew, or when I bake,
You shall have a piece of my wedding cake

The Giants Hedge

Jack the giant with nothing to do

Built a hedge from Lerryn to Looe
