A little brown bulb went to sleep in the ground.
In her little brown nightie she/he slept very sound.
Old King Winter raged and roared overhead,
But the little brown bulb did not stir in her/his bed.
Then came Lady Spring
tip-toeing, tip-toeing over the lea,
fingers to lips as soft as can be.
Then the little brown bulb she/he lifted her/his head,
slipped off her nightie and jumped out of bed!
Children often enjoy playing this game over and over again. They also may enjoy playing the game with the adult getting under the blanket, or with both of you getting under the blanket to spring out together!
