Game Of The Fox
: NURSERY GAMES
: Popular Rhymes And Nursery Tales
One child is Fox. He has a knotted handkerchief, and a home to which he
may go whenever he is tired, but while out of home he must always hop on
one leg. The other children are geese, and have no home. When the Fox is
coming out he says,--
The Fox gives warning
It's a cold frosty morning.
After he has said these words he is at liberty to hop out, and use his
knotted handkerchief. Whoever he can touch is Fox instead, but the geese
run on two legs, and if the Fox puts his other leg down, he is hunted
back to his home.
