The illustration below is from The Real Mother Goose which was illustrated by Blanche Fisher Wright and published in 1916. The whole book is available to download for free from Project Gutenberg. Just click the link on the book title to download it. I’ll be posting much of it on my Nursery Rhyme site over time – with French and Spanish translations. I’ll also post some here from time to time – along with some other public domain rhymes.
Swan, swan, over the sea;
Swim, swan, swim!
Swan, swan, back again;
Well swum, swan!
