Ring around the Ros-ie AL-OU-ET-TE

Constance, this is a song with dance that we as children use
to sing and dance to the “Ring Around The Rosie’ game. I wrote
This poem(SONG) using Nette‘s:  ALOUETTE meter and rhyme scheme.
Meter: 5, 5, 7, 5, 5, 7
Rhyme Scheme: a, a, b, c, c, b

~Ring around the rose...
Bugs flew up my nose...
                             “STOCKIN FEET…AL-OU-ET-TE“
~Dancing in moon light...
Yes with all our might...
                              "AL-OU-ET-TE…I CAN‘T SEE”  

~Fireflies to and fro, 
Emits awesome glow,
                              “AL-OU-ET-TE…LOUD WHOO-PEE”
~We spoon under moon...
Weeping cries of Loon...
                              “RING ROS-IE…AL-OU-ET-TE!”

~Ring of love on fire,
Passion’s love inspire,
                              “Al-OU-ET-TE.. NEATH GUM TREE”
~Our true love be strong,
True love can’t be wrong,
                              “AL-OU-ET-TE.. LOVERS BE” 

              “STOCKIN FEET…AL-OU-ET-TE“
             “AL-OU-ET-TE…I CAN‘T SEE”
            “AL-OU-ET-TE…LOUD WHOO-PEE”
            “RING ROS-IE…AL-OU-ET-TE!”
            “Al-OU-ET-TE.. NEATH GUM TREE”
            "LOVERS BE...AL-OU-ET-TE"
