Corner-of-the-Street

Down by the corner of the street,
Where the three roads meet,
And the feet
Of the people as they pass go "Tweet-tweet-tweet",
Who comes tripping round the corner of the street?
One pair of shoes which are Nurse's;
One pair of slippers which are Percy's. . .
Tweet! Tweet! Tweet!
Milne, from When We Were Very Young (1924), from tonight's story time.
