Jo wrote asking about a Lucy Locket Circle Game:
I remember the Rhyme…
Lucy Locket Lost her Pocket
Kitty Fisher found it
Not a Penny was there in it
But a ribbon round it.
But as a child I can remember playing a game where we recited this with one person walking round her friends seated in a circle on the ground- the rhyme went on longer and finished with ……. ‘one of you has picked it up and put it in your pocket’ – then ‘ it wasn’t you , it wasn’t you….. but it was YOU’ this last bit with the one walking round touching the heads of some seated – when she got to ‘it was you’, that person stood and the 2 chased round the circle . Does any one remember the game and the rest of the rhyme?
If anyone can help Jo, please comment below.
