 I wish I had not got a cold,
The wind is big and wild,
I wish that I was very old,
Not just a little child.
Somehow the day is very long Just keeping here, alone; I do not like the big wind's song, He's growling for a bone He's like an awful dog we had Who used to creep around And snatch at things--he was so bad, With just that horrid sound.
I'm sitting up and nurse has made Me wear a woolly shawl; I wish I was not so afraid; It's horrid to be small.
It really feels quite like a day Since I have had my tea; P'raps everybody's gone away And just forgotten me.
And oh! I cannot go to sleep Although I am in bed.
The wind keeps going creepy-creep And waiting to be fed.
