Notes

Here's slightly different wording of this riddle from The Little Mother Goose (1912), illustrated by Jessie Willcox Smith:

I have a little sister; they call her Peep, Peep.
She wades the water deep, deep, deep;
She climbs the mountains, high, high, high-
Poor little thing! she has but one eye.
