Games People Play

I like playing Ring Around the Rosie,
but what's a pocket full of posie?
And who the heck's this girl called Rosie?
I've asked all over town.

Maybe I'm just being nosey,
But nobody knows why pockets of posie
or circling 'round some girl named Rosie
should make us all fall down.

I also like playing Mother May I,
and though I play it every day I
still don't know what I should say, I
just don't need this noise.

Why should I say Mother May I
have some scissor steps? Today I
think I'll play a different way, I
think all ask for toys.

I am trying to find a publisher or agent
to represent any or all of the stories and poems
in "A Pocketful of Rhymes".
If you know anyone that can help, or have comments,
please e-mail me.Thanks!
