Short  and Classic Children's Poems (English):

1. Jack and Jill
Jack and Jill went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water.
Jack fell down and broke his crown,
And Jill came tumbling after.
Up Jack got and home did trot
As fast as he could caper.
He went to bed to mend his head,
With vinegar and brown paper.

2. A Cat Came Fiddling Out Of A Barn
A cat came fiddling out of a barn,
With a pair of bag-pipes under her arm:
She could sing nothing but fiddle–dee-dee,
The mouse has married the bumble-bee;
Pipe, cat, - dance, mouse, -
We’ll have a wedding at our house.

3. Higglety, Pigglety, Pop! (Samuel Griswold Goodrich)
Higglety, pigglety, pop!
The dog has eaten the mop;
The pig’s in a hurry,
The cat’s in a flurry,
Higglety, pigglety, pop!

4. Jack Be Nimble
Jack be nimble,
Jack be quick,
Jack jumped over the candlestick.

5. Cobbler, Cobbler
Cobbler, Cobbler mend my shoe,
Get it done by half past two.
If half past two is much too late,
Get it done by half past eight.

6. Dr. Foster Went To Gloucester
Dr. Foster went to Gloucester
In a shower of rain.
He stepped in a puddle
Right up to his middle
And never went there again.

7. Pussycat, Pussycat
Pussycat, Pussycat, where have you been?
I’ve been to London to visit the Queen;
Pussycat, Pussycat, what did you there?
I frightened a little mouse under a chair.

8. Peter, Peter Pumpkin-Eater
Peter, Peter Pumpkin-Eater,
Had a wife and couldn’t keep her;
He put her in a pumpkin shell,
And there he kept her very well.

There was a monkey climbed up a tree,
When he fell down, then down fell he.
There was a crow sat on a stone, When he was gone, then there Alas none.
There was an old wife did eat an apple,
When she had eat two, she had eat a couple.
There was a horse going to the mill,
When he went on, he stood not still.
There was a butcher cut his thumb,
When it did bleed, then blood did come.
There was a lackey ran a race,
When he ran fast, he ran apace.
There was a cobbler clouting shoon,
When they were mended, they were done.
There was a chandler making candle.
When he them strip, he did them handle.
There was a navy went into Spain,
When it returned, it came again.

10. Little Robin Redbreast
Little Robin Redbreast
Pit-pat all the day,
Then he opened up his wings,
And he flew away.
I went to look for Robin.
Where can Robin be?
I found him in the orchard,
Up in a cherry tree.

11. Lady-Bug, Lady-Bug
Lady-bug, Lady-bug,
Fly away home,
Your house is on fire,
And your children are gone.
All except one,
And that’s little Ann,
And she has crept under,
The warming pan.

Piping down the valleys wild, Piping songs of pleasant glee, On a cloud I saw a child, And he laughing said to ine:—
" Pipe a song about a lamb: n So I piped with merry cheer.
" Piper, pipe that song again: " So I piped; he wept to hear.
" Drop thy pipe, thy happy pipe,
Sing thy songs of happy cheer: " So I sung the same again, While he wept with joy to hear.
" Piper, sit thee down and write In a book that all may read—" So he vanished from my sight; And I plucked a hollow reed,
And I made a rural pen, And I stained the water clear, And I wrote my happy songs Every child may joy to hear.

13. Itsy BItsy spIder
Itsy Bitsy Spider
Climbed up the water spout;
Down came the rain
And washed the spider out.
Out came the sun
And dried up all the rain;
And Itsy Bitsy Spider
Climbed up the spout again.

14. Down With The Lambs
Down with the lambs,
Up with the lark.
Run to bed children,
Before it gets dark.

15. Baa, Baa, Black Sheep
Baa, baa, black sheep,
Have you any wool?
Yes, sir, yes, sir,
Three bags full.
One for the master,
And one for the dame,
And one for the little boy
who lives down the lane.

16. Little Boy Blue
Little boy blue, come blow your horn,
The sheep’s in the meadow, the cow’s in the corn.
Where is the boy that looks after the sheep?
He’s under the haystack, fast asleep.
Will you wake him? No, not I;
For if I do, he’s sure to cry.

17. Baa Baa Black Sheep
Baa baa black sheep, have you any wool?
Yes, sir, yes, sir, three bags full.
One for my master, one for my dame;
And one for the little boy who lives down the lane.
Baa baa black sheep, have you any wool?
Yes, sir, yes, sir, three bags full.

18. THE THREE CHILDREN. (1662. ANONYMOUS)Three children sliding on the ice
Upon a summer's day, As it fell out they all fell in,
The rest they ran away.
Now, had these children been at home,
Or sliding on dry ground, Ten thousand pounds to one penny
They had not all been drowned.
You parents all that children have, And you too that have none,
If you would have them safe abroad Pray keep them safe at home.

Heavenly blessings without number Gently falling on thy head.
Sleep, my babe; thy food and raiment, House and home, thy friends provide;
All without thy care or payment, All thy wants are well supplied.
How much better thou 'rt attended
Than the Hon of God could be, When from heaven he descended,
And became a child like thee.
Soft and easy is thy cradle:
Coarse and hard thy Saviour lay:
When his birthplace was a stable, And his softest bed was hay.
See the kinder shepherds round him,
Telling wonders from the sky! There they sought him, there they found him,
With his Virgin Mother by.
See the lovely Babe a-dressing;
Lovely infant, how he smiled! When he wept, the mother's blessing
Soothed and hushed the holy Child.
Lo, he slumbers in his manger.
Where the horned oxen ; Peace, my darling, here 's no danger,
Here's no ox anear thy bed.
Mayst thou live to know and fear him, Trust and love him all thy days;
Then go dwell forever near him, See his face and sing his praise!
I could give thee thousand kisses, Hoping what I most desire;
Not a mother's fondest wishes Can to greater joys aspire.

20. hickOry dickOry dOck
Hickory Dickory Dock,
The mouse ran up the clock.
The clock struck one,
The mouse ran down,
Hickory, Dickory Dock.
