Original Tale: A Family Week

King Friday said to Mother Monday
I wish for a cup of tea
Take me down the mountain
And sail on the golden sea

Mother Monday's only wish
Was for a little more strawberry jam
The Prince of Wednesday made her wait
By running away with a lamb

Little old Tuesday came in to his supper
Only to find it was gone
Queen Thursday had eaten both chicken and rice
And all that was left was the dawn

Grand Father Sunday strolled into the hall
And announced in a voice most firm
That all of the family could walk to the lake
And go fishing for trout with the worms

Beautiful Saturday, child of grace,
sat nearby on a stool
And looked at the family all down by the lake
And laughed cause the week was through
