My Maid Mary

My Maid Mary - Mama Lisa's House of English Nursery Rhymes, Intro Image


My maid Mary
She minds her dairy,
While I go a-hoeing and mowing each morn.

Merrily run the reel
And the little spinning-wheel
Whilst I am singing and mowing my corn.

Notes

The Little Mother Goose (1912), illustrated by Jessie Willcox Smith, has a slightly different version:

My maid Mary she minds the dairy,
While I go a-hoeing and mowing each morn;
Gaily run the reel and the little spinning wheel,
While I am singing and mowing my corn.

This rhyme can be found in The Nursery Rhyme Book, edited by Andrew Lang and illustrated by L. Leslie Brooke (1897). The illustration is from The Real Mother Goose (1916), illustrated by Blanche Fisher Wright.
