Mary had a little lamb,
With fleece as white as snow,
And everywhere that Mary went,
The lamb was sure to go.
У маленькой Мэри овечка жила,
Как снег белоснежною шкурка была.
И всюду, куда бы малютка ни шла,
За нею овечка послушно брела.
This poem is a nursery rhyme. It is well-known in Britain and other countries. What is a nursery
rhyme? It is a short traditional poem for young children.
“Mary Had A Little Lamb ” is written by Josephina Hale. It is about Mary Sterling, a little girl
from Sterling, Massachussets. She had a pet lamb.
One day she took him to school. Mary’s classmates were very glad to see the lamb at school. But
the teacher didn’t like it, because it was against the school rules.
I like this poem, because I like animals. I also have a pet at home. It is not a lamb but a cat.
